External Opportunities

These opportunities are not connected to the LLR LMC but feel they could be of interest to General Practice and Primary Care Colleagues.

Practice Managers – NHSE-Funded Coaching and Mentoring Opportunity!
Apply now before 4th December deadline - places limited, first-come first-served


Following the success of the last coaching and mentoring programme, and significant positive feedback from those who took part, Practice Managers are once again being offered coaching and mentoring sessions as part of the programme funded by NHS England, to be taken between January and March 2020.

Three 90-minute, one-to-one, tailored sessions with a professional coach mentor are being offered to support Practice Managers to individually think through and progress challenges and opportunities important to them. If you are a Practice Manager who would like something to be different for yourself, even if you are not exactly sure what it is, then coaching and mentoring is a powerful approach that will help you to work things through to make the changes that you want.

Feedback from Practice Managers who took part in the coaching and mentoring programme earlier this year:

"This process has been one of the most valuable things I have done during my 5 years as a practice manager”

"I wouldn't have believed that in the space of 3 x 90 minute conversations so much can have been achieved. I would recommend this mentoring service to everyone including long service experienced PMs”

“I have benefitted enormously on a personal level from this coaching. It has restored my confidence and belief in the role such that I will remain in the profession for longer”

Places are limited and are offered in equal numbers for each NHSE region on a first-come first-served basis. Expressions of Interest are invited between 12th November and midnight on 4th December.

Practice Managers - please apply via this link: https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/survey/1288e5ab

Places are offered initially to Practice Managers who have not experienced coaching through the NHSE programme earlier this year.
