Our Story

Who we are

Since 2016, the General Practice Task Force (GPTF) has grown, evolved, and now refreshed into The Hub Plus, a brand which better reflects and re-energises our values, vision, and commitment. We will continue to support our practices, partners, and the General Practice community throughout Derby, Derbyshire and beyond.

The Hub Plus is more than a training hub, we are a culmination of the work of two valuable organisations: General Practice Task Force (GPTF) and Health Education Derbyshire (HED). We have combined the benefits and services of both into a single-minded, more streamlined resource.

The primary purpose of The Hub Plus is the provision of training, education, development, retention and the complete ‘wrap-around’ support required throughout your career in Primary Care, whether that is clinical, non-clinical, management or leadership.

We also wanted a united brand that both GPTF and HED colleagues could feel inspired and empowered by as well as making a clear message of support for all Primary Care. This decision is driven by our desire to stay relevant, innovative, and responsive to the changing needs of the General Practice workforce whom we serve.
