The event, organised by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub, tied into the Five Year Forward View and the GPN 10-point plan. It was delivered in partnership with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG, and featured a keynote speech from Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, who talked about celebrating the value of GPNs in 21 st century primary care.

Delegates had the chance to meet other professionals across 16 different workshops and 19 different lunchtime stands in a vibrant and bustling day.

Further events, such as nurse forums, CPD sessions, and training courses, are being planned and if you are interested please contact the training hub at Candptraininghub@nhs.net.
