C is for Community

C is for… Community Education Provider Networks

Back in April 2016 we launched a project with Health Education England to develop Community Education Provider Networks (CEPNs) across the South West.

CEPNs are an exciting new development intended to support healthcare provider communities through the consolidation and skilling up of their workforces.

The potential of community based networks to identify workforce and training needs and to respond and deliver on these is recognised by Health Education England (HEE) as an important step in sustaining and transforming primary and community care.

In the South West, the establishment of these networks is being driven by a joint Health Education England and West of England and South West AHSN collaboration, and in the longer term it is intended these networks become self-supporting and directing.
