Practice Management for General Practice


The purpose of this programme is to help GPs and Practice Managers navigate the challenges of running a successful and profitable Healthcare Practice. It will provide GPs and Practice Managers with the tools, skills and resources to run an efficient and streamlined Practice in the core areas of HR, Practice Finances, Policies and Communication. This programme will help you gain a greater understanding of the core role of the Practice Manager as well as identifying areas where you can effectively delegate to other members of the Practice Team.

With over 20 years experiences as a Manager, Staff trainer and Business Consultant to GPs, Asumpta has a unique insight into the day to day challenges that are experienced in modern day General Practice.

All of her experience, knowledge and insights will be shared on this programme along with presentations from experts in the areas of Health & Safety, GDPR, Cyber Security. We will also have a bonus session which will provide you with some much needed tips and techniques to support you in your wellbeing and to help improve your work/life balance.

We are so looking forward to meeting you on the programme!
