The Nottinghamshire Alliance Training Hub (NATH) offers a variety of learning and development opportunities for the primary and community care workforce in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. 
As a Training Hub, we have six core functions which were identified by Health Education England (HEE). These are centred on placements, workforce planning, recruitment, new roles, retention and place-based tariffs. 
We are working on the accompanying pages which describe each of the core functions in more detail and how we are delivering against each of them. A brief summary of each can be found below.
