Is your pack out of date?

If you have previously studied with the PCTC on one of our distance learning courses, new developments may mean that your pack is now out of date. Our new electronic packs mean that this need no longer be the case.

As a past student we would like to offer you access to our electronic pack for a small subscription fee of £30 per year. With the online pack, you will receive emails every time the pack is updated or when new announcements are posted, and of course you will always be able to review the very latest version of our learning materials. You can also download the electronic pack to your Kindle device or to a Kindle app of your choosing on your phone, tablet or computer, or even simply print it out.

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please just email us with the details of the course you attended, and we will send you instructions on how to set up a direct debit for the annual subscription.

Have you studied more than one course with us? Contact us and ask for access to our online packs for all the distance learning courses you have completed. Discounts apply for multiple subscriptions!

Please note that this service is only available to existing and past students.


All of our existing funding for 2019/20 has now been used. Please note that to guarantee your place on any of our courses, you will need to pay for your place – or ask your practice to do so.

The Primary Care Training Centre offers Distance Learning Courses and Study Days, available to book online for healthcare professionals and allied staff in the UK. Some courses are available as either accredited or CPD certified. You can find out what this means to you here.

We can deliver any of our training in your area at no extra charge, subject to minimum numbers (see individual courses for minimum numbers that apply). The course content and teaching is the same, wherever the teaching days are held, but can be tailored to reflect local issues.

We have been delivering training, study days and distance learning courses to primary care staff since 1997. Over twenty thousand students have either successfully completed one of our university-accredited primary care training courses or attended one of our study days.

Evaluations always comment on their suitability and relevance to primary care.

We make it easy to organise training. We come to you and we guarantee improvements in patient care and outcomes. Please contact the Primary Care Training Centre to discuss how we can assist you with your healthcare training needs in the UK.
