Welcome to the
PMA e-Learning Programme

In order to support the development needs of the primary care workforce, the PMA are offering this new option to enhance traditional learning and reinforce existing training methods. Our quality-assured online training programmes provide a range of e-learning resources across a variety of topics.

The extensive PMA e-learning programmes enable learners to choose when, where and for how long they engage with a particular module or subject. There are a range of benefits associated with online learning – it provides a flexible, cost-effective and practical means of enhancing or replacing traditional training methods.

NHSE and HEE support significant elements of the PMA online delivery so you can be assured that it embodies best practice and is mapped to support the initiatives laid out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

The PMA applies a varied range of learning devices and instructional methods to ensure the programmes appeal to a wide range of learning styles and different levels of digital competence.

PMA Excellence in Social Prescribing Link Worker Certificate

Social prescribing is part of the new service model for personalised care outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan and integral to the changes in primary care and community-centered support. The expansion of the number of social prescribing link-workers creates a need for training, networking and support to ensure a highly competent, sustainable and agile team.

NHS App Training Module

The NHS App was released to the public in late 2018. It allows patients to book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and access a range of other healthcare services. It is vital that GP practices, their systems, and staff are prepared for using the NHS App.


National Data Opt-out Service

By October 2020, all health and adult social care organisations which process and/or disclose confidential patient information (CPI) that originates within the health and adult social care system in England are required to consider if national data opt-outs should be applied to disclosures of CPI, for purposes beyond individual care.
