We are here to support you with learning and development, recruitment and placements. This monthly newsletter will keep you up to date with the latest training hub and nursing news, upcoming training, PLT dates and much more.
First things first – who are we? 
The Coventry and Warwickshire Training Hub was set up in October with the merger of the former Coventry and Warwickshire training hubs. The Training Hub covers Coventry, Rugby, South Warwickshire and Warwickshire North.

A way to expand the workforce in Primary Care

We are funded by Health Education England to provide training and education in primary care to all staff groups. The aim is to support recruitment, retention and return of all staff groups.
We work in partnership with CCGs and the Health Care Partnership to pilot and mobilise workforce projects and submit quarterly returns to HEE on activity, as well as a bi-annual self-assessment of our performance.

We’re excited to be working with our general practice colleagues and look forward to sharing lots of useful information in the coming months.

Please use 'Your Opinion Matters' at the end to leave your feedback.
