Primary Care: Future Workforce conference sets out primary care plan for the east of England

1 April 2016

On 30 March, Health Education England hosted stakeholders from across the primary care community to discuss HEE’s strategy and work across the primary care sector. Participants from a wide range of backgrounds shared their ideas to address current challenges and to increase resilience within general practice and primary care.

The day featured keynote speakers, workshops and a World Café session allowing delegates to mould the agenda to their needs. Importantly delegates heard trainees and students’ views with presentations from pre-CCT GP Commissioning Fellows, a recently trained GP and a Student Nurse currently working in general practice, all from the east of England.

“The primary care workforce event demonstrated the energy and commitment of colleagues in the east of England with regard to general practice and primary care. It was a privilege just to be there; the passion and determination displayed provided real reassurance that working together we will meet the needs of the present as well as the challenges of the future.” Professor John Howard, Health Education East of England
