Workforce Hub

What we do

We provide workforce support to 26 GP Practices across Gateshead’s Primary Care Networks with access to trained, skilled and experienced clinical and non-clinical sessional workforce on a flexible basis.


We have a dedicated team based at Head Office to manage the recruitment process, induction, and provide Flexible Workforce Hub members access to relevant training to ensure we meet the needs of our practices.

How does it work?

GP practices can request workforce cover for planned  and unplanned absences and annual leave by accessing a workforce platform called Lantum.


Available sessions will be visible to our team of clinical and non clinical sessional hub members. Once the member has been selected for that session they will be notified via Lanutm.


We (Community Based Care Workforce Solutions) will pay the Flexible Workforce Hub members direct and invoice Practices.
