In 2014, CLIC supported a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) of all Cumbria primary care staff working in general practice, as required by the CCG ‘Local Incentive Scheme’ (LIS). This included co-ordinating the process and inputting all the data from completed forms which were returned during May 2014.
In total, returns were received for 122 GPs, 112 practice nurses/ specialist nurses, 395 admin and clerical staff, 63 health care assistants and 56 practice managers.
The CCG Primary Care Development Leads and their teams will be using the information from the TNA returns as a basis for discussions with primary care staff at locality and practice level to understand the training needs for 2015-16. The information will also support decision making and planning for future PLTs and prioritising training events.
We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation with this process. We received many helpful comments and suggestions, such as having an electronic questionnaire, which will help us to improve the process in the future. Ultimately it is hoped that this exercise will provide an improved Cumbria wide approach to training needs requirements and a systematic approach to delivering workforce training and development.
