Frequently Asked Questions:
How was the offer coordinated?
In order to maximise use of funding and improve accessibility of training, the process for accessing CPD funding is a little different in 2023/24 to previous years. We asked PCNs to let us know what training is needed so that courses can be identified, within the funding envelope, to be available for all eligible staff to access.
Based on previous requests and information gathered by NHSE we put together a tick-list of potentially funded courses. In order to enable planning of courses to meet PCN/practice needs, PCNs used this to indicate which courses eligible staff would like to access.
Please note, funding is a limited envelope and it may not be possible to meet all requests. Indicating preferences has helped identify demand and enable planning to best utilise the funding envelope, taking PCN requests into account and offering fair share access.
Many thanks to all PCNs and practices who came back to us over the summer with details of the training you would like to be able to access for your CPD eligible members of staff. It’s been fantastic to see such a phenomenal amount of requests returned. Now all data has been received we’ve arranged provision of courses within the funding envelope, reflecting your requests. We’ve worked hard to make arrangements with providers to offer as much CPD funded training as possible based on what you have told us is needed. Thank you for your support and patience as part of this process.

Who is eligible for the NHSE CPD Funding?
- Nursing Associate
- Allied Health Professional (AHP) listed below
Below is the list of 14 professions that are included in the AHP group:
- Art Therapist
- Drama Therapist
- Music Therapist
- Occupational Therapist
- Operating Department Practitioner
- Speech and Language Therapist
The offers detailed here are utilising the Humber and North Yorkshire (HNY) general practice allocation and are open to all eligible staff employed by a practice or PCN in HNY.
Why aren’t other roles included?
The included list has been mandated by NHSE in line with the governmental budget allocation for CPD, this remains the same since its introduction in 2020-21. Training hubs have fed back to NHSE practice concerns around why other wider workforce roles such as HCAs, GPAs and PAs are not currently included, in the hope they will be considered in review for future year’s allocations.
Can I access multiple offers?
Yes, you can access funded training within any of the detailed categories, up to the limit of each category:
- BiteSize CPD webinars – unlimited
- Rotherham Respiratory courses – up to one per person
- NB Plus subscription – unlimited access once subscribed (please subscribe by 30/11/23)
- Haxby Group Training courses – up to two per person
This is to ensure fair access. For limited categories a waiting list system will be in place for requests of further places above the category limit. If funding allows later in the year we will then be able to offer additional places on a first-come-first-served basis from the waiting list.

I’m already on the Rotherham Respiratory waiting list for a course, do I need to re-apply?
No, Rotherham Respiratory will shortly be in touch with you to offer a funded place on your requested course. If you requested more than one they will ask your preference.
Rotherham Respiratory courses were previously funded via Workforce Transformation Funding (WTF, previously known as SSPRD) which has now run out for 2023-24. They have kept all requests on a waiting list until further funding has become available and these will now transfer across as CPD funding requests.
Can we block book a group of staff for the BiteSize CPD webinars?
The BiteSize CPD webinars can be booked via the Medtribe platform, links to book each session can be found here: BiteSize CPD Webinars
The platform is designed for individuals to create a login and book their own places, so they can then manage their bookings, receive joining links and information, log their attendance, and receive a certificate afterwards. We recommend each member of staff books their own places, rather than someone else booking on their behalf.
Dates will frequently be added throughout the year so please check back regularly.
Can I request a webinar topic not already listed? How will I know when the topics I want are running?
If you would like to request a topic not already included in the BiteSize CPD webinar list please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to hear from you and if there are common requests we can look to add in any topics with enough demand.
Throughout the year dates will be added regularly and there will be webinars available most weeks. Some topics will run more than once subject to demand, as places are limited to 30 in each session. You can see what’s coming up by regularly checking here, where dates will be listed at least two months ahead.
I already claimed my £333 individually as I wanted to source my own training – can I also access these funded options?
Unfortunately not, the choice to claim £333 to use independently was an alternative option to accessing these centrally funded options. This is because there would not be enough funding for individuals to take advantage of both options.
If I did not already choose to claim my £333 individually during the PCN returns phase, can I still opt to do that now?
Unfortunately in order to manage allocation of the limited budget based on PCN returns, this option was only open during the PCN returns phase (August 2023).
I have a question not covered above, who should I contact?
Please contact the HNY Primary Care Workforce and Training Hub team on email@example.com and we will be more than happy to help answer any questions or arrange a chat if useful.
If your query relates to a specific provider’s courses, please contact the provider via the details in the listed links above. Alternatively, we could pass your query on for you.
Can I give feedback on the available funded options?
Yes please! We would love to hear from you, to help us improve and further tailor the offer to meet the needs of practices, PCNs and individuals when planning future CPD funded offers.
We would appreciate you taking the time to complete the short survey here:
Can you help with accessing funding for training not covered by CPD?
You are also welcome to tell us of anything not covered by CPD that you would like to see funding available for (i.e. non-CPD activities or for staff members not included in CPD funding). We can feed this information back to NHSE to help inform other commissioning considerations.
