Funded by Health Education England (HEE) and NHS England (NHSE) Training Hubs are tasked with supporting workforce development and transformation across primary and community care.
There are six Training Hubs in South West London (SWL) each aligned to a geographical region (Wandsworth, Merton, Sutton, Kingston, Richmond & Croydon).
Training Hubs work collaboratively with stakeholders including placement providers, education providers, primary and community care providers including charity & voluntary organisations.
