So what's our story?

Our unwavering commitment to evidence-based training, coupled with our extensive decades-long experience in primary care, positions the GP Practice Training Ltd team at the forefront of ensuring the comprehensive training of your staff.

  • Background

    During the Covid-19 pandemic, we observed a substantial void in the market for Primary Care HCA training. This gap became particularly evident as the crisis unfolded. Existing HCA training programs were primarily designed for hospital and nursing home staff, failing to adequately address the specific demands placed on HCAs within the context of general practice. To ensure the continued sustainability of General Practice, it has become increasingly crucial to introduce more qualified clinical staff to meet the rising demand. HCAs continue to play an indispensable role in delivering top-notch nursing care to our communities.
