The role of the practice manager plays a crucial part in the coordination and delivery of primary care activity. Not only is the role pivotal it is evolving and growing in response. While this presents exiting new possibilities it also has it difficulties. Practices are busy, and the practice manager is in high demand from other people in and around the practice, to patients and public. 

During the programme participants will embark on a development journey which builds the foundations to form a sustainable peer support group. Reflecting on recent leadership experiences participants will be supported to develop their leadership both personally and as teams, looking at how practice managers can develop and support the role in Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

Programme aims 

Delivered via Zoom over three 3-hour workshops this programme is designed to support practice managers to:

  • Build and develop effective working relationships across their networks
  • Enhance influencing and negotiation skills
  • Greater confidence and personal resilience working across systems
  • Develop more effective and assertive communication skills
  • Consolidate learning into reality and apply back to their workplaces.
