• The Black Country & West Birmingham STP has supported Primary Care Networks to recruit 10 new General Practice Nurses.

    Black Country & West Birmingham general practices continue to face a significant challenge in nursing recruitment in the face of recent or impending retirements. It is imperative that our practices have the necessary workforce to offer sustainable services into the future, and registered nurses will be a key component of that. 

    The STP, in partnership with NHS England and Health Education England, has offered an exciting opportunity: a GPN Specialty Training scheme to provide support and funding to a number of participating Primary Care Networks.

    Each nurse recruited through this scheme will be employed by a practice on behalf of their PCN. The offer includes funded places on the Fundamentals of General Practice Nursing training programme for all of the new recruits, to commence in March 2020 for a period of nine months.  

    Host practices provide supervision and support so that Specialty Trainees exit with a portfolio of evidence to support foundational competence. Once they have completed their training, Specialty Trainees will be supported to secure a substantive role in their host PCN or in another vacancy within the STP.

    This programme is at the heart of delivering the General Practice Nursing Ten Point Plan, which is an essential part of NHS England’s General Practice Forward view.
