The LMC hopes that the event will be an informative and fun way to hone your skills and boost your knowledge to take back and apply to the day-to-day workings of your practice.
It will also be an opportunity to network with peers, build resilience, reflect on changes impacting on GP practices and the NHS – and to take some time out and have some ‘headspace’ away from your hectic day to day work.
The agenda and has been shaped to combine a mix of prominent speakers – including Dr Krishna Kasaraneni, from the General Practitioners Committee’s Executive Team; Val Hempsey, Council Member of the National Association of Primary Care anda former practice manager with over 30 years’ experience; and Dr Liam Farrell, a former family doctor and award-winning writer and seasoned broadcaster – with a series of practical workshop sessions for delegates to choose from. These will cover areas such as legal, HR, personal resilience and financial issues.
There will be opportunities for delegates to get involved in activities, ask questions and make constructive challenges throughout the day, to ensure the event is interactive and engaging.
There will also be a marketplace with stands from exhibitors such as the Workforce Hub (CEPN), the South West Academic Health Science Network, South West Communications Group, Primary Care Support England, LMC Buying Group, British Medical Association, Hillcroft Surgery Supplies and Railey Projects.
The event costs £50 to attend, which includes refreshments. If you can’t go, please send your Deputy Practice Manager or equivalent – if you have one – as we are keen that all local GP practices are represented.
Details of how to register and how to select your preferred workshops will be shared in the LMC’s July newsletter. In the meantime, please ‘save the date’.
Additionally, the Carlyon Bay Hotel is offering a discount on accommodation on a limited number of rooms for attendees who wish to stay the night before the event. These are available on a first come first serve basis and you will need to book directly with the hotel, quoting your attendance at the Practice Managers Conference.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
