About Us

We support the development of the existing and future workforce of General Practice in our area by rolling out nationally and locally commissioned projects in line with educational and workforce priorities. Currently the LSC Training Hub’s multidisciplinary team focuses on facilitating, coordinating and promoting placements in general practice for student nurses, AHPs and Physician associates as well as clinical and administrative apprenticeship opportunities.

We also provide support to staff returning to general practice as well as training and development opportunities for current general practice employees. We achieve our goals through close cooperation with our commissioning bodies, partnering universities and participating practices.

See the NHSE/I Training hubs guidance 2020-22 here.

Aims of the Hub

LSC TH localities locality labels 1

Our Structure

The Lancashire and South Cumbria Training hub is delivered by Morecambe Bay Primary Care Collaborative Community Interest Company. As a not-for-profit local Primary Care Provider organisation, we are well placed to help oversee and shape the delivery of the Health Education England and NHS England programmes for Primary Care Education and training, which we hold the contract for. 

The Training Hub team is an integral part of our organisation structure, which is based in Moor Lane Mills in Lancaster.

Whilst Morecambe Bay Primary Care Collaborative are responsible and accountable for all parts of the Training Hub, we have chosen to work alongside 4 locality provider organisations, where we subcontract delivery to these locality hub teams, to enable high quality, local relationships to be maintained. We also directly operate the Morecambe Bay locality team in our own area.
Where it makes sense to run a single combined programme, the central team operates this for the whole ICS footprint of Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Our Locality Training Hubs

Lancashire and South Cumbria Training Hub is made up of 5 Locality Training Hubs that match the ICP footprints – Fylde Coast, Morecambe Bay, Pennine Lancashire, Greater Preston, Chorley and South Ribble and West Lancashire. The Hubs work together to form a multidisciplinary team of clinical and administrative professionals supporting Primary Care teams across the patch and promoting the positive impact of diversifying primary care roles.

We’re working hard on creating an inviting and informative space for each of our local Training Hubs below. Please come back soon to discover the fantastic work our teams do and the opportunities on offer.
