Continuing professional development (CPD) for primary care

For all those in community-based, primary care roles, access to professional development can sometimes be difficult.

Whilst most NHS trusts have a library team who are on hand to support staff, students and trainees with their professional development and studies, many in primary care don’t have access to that support.

To help, we have collated an online library’ of professional development resources and study aids provided by a range of relevant and trusted bodies and designed specifically for primary care staff and learners.

As the national NHS Knowldge and Library Services team we also offer a range of study and development resources. You can see summaries on this website including downloadable flyers with tailored information for specific professions.
