Workforce Development

HEE is playing a key part in developing modern multi-disciplinary teams in primary and community care. Our work in training the GPs of the future, expanding the clinical role of professions such as physician associates and clinical pharmacists and developing new roles including medical assistants, will help to shape the future workforce. This work encompasses three key strands:

• Recruit: Improving recruitment into general practice
• Retain: Retaining doctors within general practice
• Return: Supporting those who wish to return to general practice

Workforce Development focusses on progressing its own priorities which include the education of  Physician Associates, increasing HCSW and Apprentices in primary care, facilitating new ways of working with Pharmacists and AHPs and developing new roles including Advanced Care Practitioners.
