We have four big priorities in our workforce plan: helping our leaders, carers and volunteers to develop; supporting our staff, apprentices and people on placements; improving our offer of employment; and filling difficult roles.


Keep up to date with the latest workforce developments in Primary Care across Greater Manchester by subscribing to our fortnightly newsletter.

Each issue of our fortnightly newsletter is divided into manageable sections with an interactive table of contents that enables you to reach the section of the newsletter that interests you most. We publish our fortnightly newsletter online along with Word and PDF versions which are very helpful if you want to copy and paste items of interest into your own publications.

Careers platform


We’ve developed the Greater Manchester Primary Care Careers platform to promote a sustainable and thriving primary care workforce across Greater Manchester.

Use it to find out more about working in primary care, living and working in Greater Manchester and access the latest job vacancies from the NHS Jobs website.

New skills

We’ve been working with Health Education England (HEE) to equip our workforce with new skills so they can offer better services.

Award schemes

We’ve also established award schemes that celebrate the people who’re making a difference to people’s health in Greater Manchester, as well as raise awareness of their vital roles in our communities.

Pride in Practice

Our Pride in Practice training project is helping dentists, opticians and pharmacists to meet the needs of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people.
