The Black Country Training Hub is dedicated to making local primary care a great place to work, supporting clinicians, practices and the wider system.
Our aim is to provide a primary care workforce, now and in the future, that ensures people receive safe, sustainable and high-quality care. This will require us to be bolder and braver than ever before about how our workforce is shaped and provided. We want the Black Country to be a great place to work, and to support individuals to grow into new and exciting roles.
We see workforce transformation as a core element of the change needed within primary care to meet growing demands. Our schemes are continuously being improved, with additional schemes being introduced on a regular basis to suit both clinical and non-clinical staff at all stages of their career.

Liz Corrigan, GPN System Lead
As a Training Hub our aim is to enable all members of the nursing family within general practice to deliver safe, evidence base and effective care through professional development. A whole range of support is available, from HCA and Nursing Associate apprenticeships, to clinical skills programmes, to portfolio careers opportunities and advanced clinical practice. We are also proud to offer a range of networking opportunities for nurses, peer mentorship, clinical supervision and GPN Facilitators. Our goal is to provide a clear strategy and opportunities for nurses working in the area and encourage everyone to have their say in the way that this is done.
