What we do

Training Hubs are a central part of NHS England's Workforce Plan. Here are some of the ways in which we are supporting the Primary Care workforce in South East London

South East London Workforce Development Hub, formerly South East London Training Hub was formed in 2020 when Health Education England (HEE) asked borough training hubs to work together and form an ICS level entity. The aim of this was to ensure “the primary care workforce of today and tomorrow are trained in the right numbers, have the necessary skills, NHS values and behaviours.

We work closely with HEE, now NHS Workforce, Training and Education (NHS WTE) as well as our South East London Integrated Care System (SEL ICS) to provide workforce planning, student and other learner placement capacity and training and education for general practice staff across the six boroughs (Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham, and Southwark).

All six boroughs have a “locality” Training Hub providing closer working relationships with practices, PCNs and other providers within their boroughs and we work together to look after the training and development needs of all six boroughs.

Our offer is constantly expanding and developing so please browse the website to see what we have on offer currently, and if you can't find something, just .
