CPD Funding & Access to University Courses

CPD Funding for Registered Nurses & AHPs in General Practice

Between 2020-2022, Health Education England provided a budget for CPD, which has been available to apply to for registered Nurses & AHPs employed by General Practice in Cornwall.  The funding available was based on £1000 towards course fees per eligible professional over 3 years (funding round started in April 2020 and ended in March 2023).

We are pleased to confirm an additional 12 months of funding has been made available by NHSE, which is based on £330 per eligible nurse/AHP member of staff. Cornwall Training Hub will be completing an investment plan to return to NHSE confirming how practices in Cornwall would like to utilise this funding for their staff. Please continue to use the request form below to apply for any course you are looking to apply for.
