Why are GPs excluded from CPD/WD Funding? 

We are governed by NHS England on how grants, such as CPD and Workforce Development Funding, can be allocated and they have specified eligible roles. If you are a GP and would like advice on your career development, you can chat with the Phoenix Programme. 

When will NATH know what training funding is available? 

NHS England usually tells us between 1 April and 30 June. As soon as we are notified we will update our website and promote the funding opportunities via our regular communication channels. Please note that education grants are subject to change.
