CEPN (Community Education Provider Network)

“Providing career opportunities in primary care for nursing, primary care assistants, administration and reception careers.”

Coventry & Rugby GP Alliance is a new federation that continues to develop and grow whose aim is to protect and improve the capability of local primary care. The organisation has recognised that central to this is to be a learning organisation that fosters the development of a highly skilled primary care workforce.

Our CEPN provides a training structure within primary care that is able to deliver a complete career pathway from the end of schooling, capable of meeting the career aspirations of primary care trainees.

Our goal is to improve the sustainability of primary care by promotion of a new and improved balance to the workforce. The CRGPA is hugely supportive of the role that nurses play in improving primary care service. We are motivated to see more nurses in primary care with better careers, enjoying their work with primary care and directly participating in and steering new models of care across Coventry and Rugby.
