Primary Care Training Needs Analysis 

2023 Primary Care Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is now CLOSED! 

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this year's Primary Care Training Needs Analysis survey. We really appreciate you taking the time to share what training and development you need. The survey closed on Sunday 26 March 2023. We are now reviewing the feedback and aim to publish a summary of the results and our action plan by summer 2023.  

Why is the Training Needs Analysis needed? 

We are commissioned by NHS England and Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS) to support the primary care workforce in respect of education and development needs. 
By taking part in the annual Training Needs Analysis you are helping to shape the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire training, education and development offer. Your views mean we are better able to plan a programme of learning suited to your needs.  

Results from the Training Needs Analysis 2022-23 

Who can complete the survey? 

The survey is intended ONLY for staff working primary care in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. If you work outside of this area you may want to contact your local training hub with any individual requests for training.  

What do we do with the information? 

The information provided gives us critical evidence to support any future opportunities for the ICS to bid for learning and development funding. 
The data collected assists in planning: 
Continued Professional Development (CPD) training events open to the whole workforce – short sessions to update skills or knowledge. 
Education Programmes which support ICS priorities linked to population health management that enhance your skills and knowledge. These may be for clinical and non-clinical staff. 
Education Programmes which support the primary care workforce to be strong, capable, confident and resilient. 
How we can allocate CPD and Workforce Development Funds across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. 
Where we signpost people to relevant training from other providers. 
From the results, we will present a summary report based on the Place-Based Partnership localities and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) (subject to a sufficient number of responses per PCN), to support any local discussions about workforce needs.  
The survey is anonymous. At the end of the survey there are a few questions where respondents can choose to leave an email address. This question is only used to correspond with individuals who request specific information. Contact details are not shared in any reporting.  

Do your individual views count? 

Absolutely! Although, you may have unique training needs, the workforce in the area is so large, others are likely to request or suggest similar learning requirements. Whilst we do our best to support every individual, we endeavour to get value for money when we commission training and education. If you have a specific training request that requires funding, you can submit a Learning and Development Funding Request Form.  

Are there other opportunities to share my views? 

We recognise that training needs can change throughout the year. If you would like to discuss what learning and development opportunities are available to you, please email us on
