East midlands

The training hub (previously called Community Education Provider Networks (CEPNs)) project is part of our Primary Medical Services Programme in the East Midlands. It works to increase the undergraduate student placements in Primary Care in collaboration with HEE, HEIs and general practices across the East Midlands region.

It presents an exciting opportunity for general practices and other primary care providers to work in a supported network. We are aiming to build capacity for education delivery in primary care and increase the number of undergraduate students and learners in primary care and out of hospital settings. This has been shown to have a positive impact on people choosing a career in those settings.


The training hubs offer placements for the following groups in general practice:

  • Undergraduate medical students.
  • Undergraduate nurse students.
  • Undergraduate pharmacy students.
