Lunch & Learn GP Education

We understand that you can’t always leave the surgery for learning events but have educational needs to fulfil. That’s why we offer a different type of educational event where you choose the subject or consultant and we’ll bring them to your surgery along with a tasty lunch to ensure minimum disruption to your working day.

The sessions are absolutely FREE. Find out more here.

Community Education Provider Network (CEPN)

CEPN supports the planning, education and training of our local primary care workforce.

CEPN is a multi-agency project developed to:

  • Promote multi-professional learning
  • Work across health and social care
  • Support improvements in the quality of education
  • Develop local education capacity
  • Utilise workforce data
  • Provide continued professional development
  • Respond to and plan for local priorities and workforce needs

CEPN includes representatives from a variety of organisations all working together to tackle the recruitment crisis in primary care and develop the existing workforce.

Those organisations include members of Health Education England involved in training and workforce, the local CCGs, education providers, Suffolk GP Federation and, you, the local workforce.
