Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to developing the workforce to reach their full potential by investing time and funding into continuous professional development (CPD).
Ongoing CPD is provided by mandatory training, study days, conferences and modular programme activity. Modular programme support is provided through commissioned funding by Health Education England (South) and via academic partnership with Plymouth University.
