Primary Care and Community Courses

Untitled Page

We offer the courses and workshops you need to develop your skills and further your career.

Whether your work setting is Community Service, GP Practice or Walk in Centre, Hospice, Nursing/Care home or Prison Health, we can help you deliver the best care to your patients.

In England, in the last decade, the focus of NHS patient care has moved closer to home, out of hospital and into the community. As working with individuals in the community is very different to working in an acute setting, we have put together a comprehensive programme of education to support staff at all levels, to develop professionally and deliver high quality care.

We offer workshops and modules on a wide range of subjects, many of which can contribute to fully accredited degree and masters programmes, with recordable and registerable professional qualifications.
