North Central London Training Hub homepage

Barnet Primary Care Training Hub was first established in 2014 (previously known as Barnet Community Education Provider Network/CEPN) with a remit to improve the health, wellbeing, and care available to people in Barnet through strengthening the health and care workforce.

Barnet has a diverse population, with some relatively deprived areas and other more affluent areas. Barnet is the largest borough in London with about 399,000 residents, with a largely elderly population. The population is served by approximately 50 general practice surgeries which are grouped together by 7 primary care networks (PCNs).

There are approximately 80 registered nursing and care homes in the borough and many people move to Barnet to reside in these homes. Many immigrants have moved to parts of Barnet too, including young families with children.

Barnet Primary Care Training Hub comprises of a network of more than 30 stakeholders working together across health and care sectors and disciplines.

The main stakeholders are Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust (the local acute trust), Central London Community Healthcare Trust (the community provider), the Barnet Integrated Care Partnership, patient group, Barnet Federated GPs CIC, Middlesex Local Pharmacy Committee, Local Medical Committee, Public Health, Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust and Barnet social care.
