There are over 950 GP practices across Scotland. Practice Managers (PMs) play a central role in meeting the changing demands within Primary Care. NES provides support and development opportunities to Practice Managers through the Practice Managers Vocational Training Scheme, and via The Scottish Practice Management Development Network.
This work fits within the wider NES strategic plan, in particular with the four key themes identified in the NES strategic framework:
- Networking at a National and Local level
- Building workforce capacity for service improvement
- Succession Planning
- Delivering educational support
- Strengthening partnership working
