An exciting new project is being rolled out across North Cumbria, specifically aimed at General Practice.


Challenges exist across our healthcare system, particularly in primary care - exacerbated by our recruitment difficulties.  With funding from NHS England and input from stakeholders across our region, we're rolling out an initiative to help aid recruitment of new colleagues, whilst supporting our existing general practitioners. We want to ensure practices can continue to offer the best standard of care for their patients.
