1. This report describes findings from a survey of general practices in Kent and Medway, giving the views of practice managers and practice nurses with regard to training needs. The focus is on the training needs of nurses in general practice in order for them to run clinics for patients with long term conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease.

2. The aims of the study were: To understand varying levels at which practice nurses across the county are working in the provision of care of patients with long term conditions, so that appropriate levels of training can be commissioned. To determine likely training needs which will then inform the training provision commissioned by the Kent & Medway General Practice Staff Training Team for practice nurses across the county. To provide Kent & Medway General Practice Staff Training Team with data relating to likely future training needs as a proxy for future course commissioning at a variety of levels.
