Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

At the Training Hub, we are dedicated to creating positive learning experiences for those working in general practice throughout Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes and are committed to doing so in an inclusive way.

Recognising the diverse needs of individuals is important to ensure we create more opportunities and continue to offer training and resources for all. As you will see below, we are taking steps to improve access. Your feedback matters to us and helps us to continue to drive change, so we encourage you to give us your feedback so that we can support everyone learning to their full potential.
