Primary Care Intelligence and Demand Project
The North West LETB, Health Education North West (HENW), identified the need to investigate the requirements of primary care in respect of workforce development, starting with GP Practices. As such the LETB has launched a Primary Care Intelligence and Demand Project (running from 2013 until 2015). This project sits under a wider remit of work, within the Integrated Workforce unit.The Integrated Workforce Unit (IWU) has been developed by HENW in response to the changing organisational landscape and context in order to maximise the use of resources across a number of current work streams. The unit aims to ensure that these work streams, which are of themselves discrete, are clearly interconnected, inform each other and develop cohesively. The unit operates as a direct function of HENW and is hosted by East Cheshire NHS Trust; along with partner arrangements it operates as a ‘ virtual’ team across the North West.
