Sefton Training Hub

Welcome to your Sefton Training Hub. Your local community led team is here to help your PCN, your practice, your staff and ultimately your patients. We are a group of people who support the development and transformation of the primary and community care workforce through education and training across Southport & Formby and South Sefton. Part of the Cheshire & Merseyside Training Hub, our aim is to help attract, recruit and retain staff to ensure that our workforce is fit for the future and so that our patients will benefit from high quality care and services.
