Governance Framework for Training and Education in Primary CareThe overarching objective of this framework is to support with the growth and development of the primary care workforce in collaboration with the Cheshire & Merseyside Training Hub whose aim is to; create an engaged and empowered workforce, establish career pathways in all parts of the system and to become a more attractive career choice. It sets out the expectations for each of the roles in both skills and educational requirements which will assist with workforce planning and educational commissioning. It will enable practitioners to plan and develop careers and will assist employers in identifying the skills and education required to provide high-quality care. In order to ensure that primary care can continue to meet the challenge of growing a workforce fit for both practice and purpose, increasing the capacity and capability of all employees is essential.
