Cheshire and Merseyside Primary Care Academy (PCA) – A Training Hub Collaborative Training Hub Background Establishing the Primary Care Academy 2015 -2017 2018 • In recent years it has been recognised that the move towards place based care requires greater focus on developing community and primary care workforce, whilst considering cross system workforce solutions. • In 2015 & 2016 HEE NW launched a new initiative to develop Enhanced Training Hub across the region, taking the learning from the training hub model that had been developed in South Yorkshire to increase student nurse placements in general practice. Six Training Hubs were established across Cheshire and Merseyside. • Over the last 3 years the remit of the Training Hub has expanded to ensure we grow primary care workforce by: • Becoming a more attractive career choice • Creating an engaged and empowered workforce • Establishing career pathways in all parts of the system • Key result areas have focused on: • Promoting and coordinating non-medical student placements and increasing nurse mentors in general practice • Promoting careers in general practice • Supporting new roles in general practice – i. e. Physician Associates and GP Assistants • In 2017 HEE announced that there was no plan to develop more training hubs, so the existing training The overarching objective for the Training Hubs is to support with the growth and development of the primary care workforce in Cheshire and Merseyside. • For 2018 HEE asked the six training hubs in Cheshire and Merseyside(C&M) to consider how they could work collaboratively to deliver more workforce projects at a larger scale. The C&M Training Hub collaborative secured funding for the core work until 2019 and additional projects across C&M. Each Training Hub agreed to lead on a number of these projects and it was agreed to rebrand the collaborative as a Primary Care Academy: 1
