BHR CEPN Training Hub

Our Vision
To ensure that everyone accessing and delivering care in BHR feels valued and valuable.

Our Mission
To utilise BHR CEPN activities to support the local BHR Integrated Care System become the best that we can be.

BHR Community Education Provider Network (BHR CEPN) is the Transformation and Training Hub covering the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge.

Improve the experience of care

We are funded by Health Education England and NHS England to identify the training and development needs of our local workforce and devise, develop and/or commission responses to meet these identified needs. Our responses are primarily aimed at supporting, promoting and encouraging the transformation towards an integrated health and care system for BHR, involving the three local authorities, BHR CCGs, acute trust, community and mental health trust, residential care and primary care.

Examples of our activities include mental health first aid, making every contact count, group consultations, motivational interviewing, the apprenticeship programme and CPD courses.
We work with local employers to create development models that encourage people to want to work, and stay working in our local health and care system.

Our objective is to embed collaboration across the various workforce groups so that our local communities experience seamless care. We seek to achieve this through a culture of learning for our workforces.

Who are we?

We are a small team of clinicians and managers who are passionate about the role of education and training in promoting change.

We identify, engage and support local trainers to develop their skills and capacity, and also to work together across professional boundaries to realise our ambitions of a multidisciplinary faculty to embed collaborative learning in our system.

We are overseen by a Board with representatives from all sectors and providers in the BHR health and care system.
