The Fundamentals in Primary Care course is for qualified nurses or nursing associates new to General Practice to support their transition into Primary Care.

This course covers core clinical skills essential for nursing roles in Primary Care and includes an introduction to other key areas such as health promotion, screening and long-term condition management as well as offering leadership development and strengthening understanding of accountability, quality and governance.

The next fully funded cohort on the Fundamentals in Primary Care will run with Buckinghamshire New University in June 2023.
