Tower Hamlets GP Care Group CIC hosts the Training Hub. The ambition of Training Hub is to be seen as a provider-based network, and the development of the programme is jointly developed by all partners.

The programme activities and financial spends are overseen by a steering committee. The committee continues to evolve in order to facilitate a more multi-organisational representation, a prerequisite of Training Hub. 

The committee meets bi-monthly, chaired by local GP Vocational Training Scheme Programme Director, Dr. Phillip Bennett-Richards. There is representation from a variety of providers including the CCG to help steer future commissioning intentions.

Tower Hamlets Together

The steering committee and the members have formed an association with Tower Hamlets Together (THT).

Regular updates of Training Hub programmes are reported back to the Organisational Development and HR workstream of the THT.

The Training Hub is identified as a key coordinator of education for Tower Hamlets Health and Social Care workforce development and is a long-term vehicle to provide joint learning opportunities to support out-of-hospital care workforce transformation.
