Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS)

ARRS Development

A project is underway through the Lancashire & South Cumbria Primary Care Training Hub to identify what support PCNs require to assist with the recruitment and embedding of the ARRS roles.
We are reaching out to Locality Hubs and PCNs as we gather research and understanding about what works well and what challenges are being experienced. Some of you may already have contributed, but we welcome input on an individual professional level and at a PCN level.
If you would like to contribute or have questions, please contact [email protected]

New roles in primary care - national toolkit

This toolkit has been developed to enable primary and community care training hubs to work collaboratively with PCNs towards the development of the primary care workforce, as outlined in the GP contract.

Training hubs are designed to meet the educational needs of the multidisciplinary primary care team and bring together NHS organisations, community providers and local authorities. This resource will allow training hubs to work with their PCNs and support workforce planning, providing a valuable resource for systems developing their primary care workforce. This toolkit refers not only to roles included in the ARRS, but to all new roles in primary care.
