Training for personalised care roles in primary care

People working in personalised care roles in primary care networks (PCNs) should ideally attend accredited training to ensure they have the knowledge, skills and expertise to carry out their role safely and effectively as outlined in the Personalised Care Core Curriculum. These training requirements, and the need for PCNs to support them, are set out in the Network Contract Direct Enhanced Service.

There is a range of learning that social prescribing link workers, health and wellbeing coaches and care co-ordinators can access through the Personalised Care Institute. This includes online and offline training, some of which is free of charge. Evidence-based personalised care training ensures that the quality of service is consistent and that people in these roles are supported with their
ongoing professional development.
