Primary Care Academy

What is the Primary Care Academy (PCA)?

The PCA is a multi-professional virtual academy for all clinical fellows working in primary care at all career stages. GPs, nurses, AHPs, ACPs and other roles undertaking any Fellowship, from across the South West region, are eligible to participate in a variety of learning opportunities and connect with peers from across the South West.

As a wider CPD opportunity, PCA events are designed to complement & enhance other workforce development programmes on offer within Devon.
