GP Management Service

Supporting GP Practices to operate efficiently

We have significant experience of providing professional support to GP Practices. We are able to successfully deliver one-off interventions or alternatively provide you with a range of support across the full range of corporate functions to free up clinical time that can be directed where it is needed – with the patient.

We know that GPs have a number of conflicting priorities that have to be delivered with limited resources. Challenges will only increase over the coming years due to funding issues, an ageing population, GP access issues, shortages of medical students opting to choose general practice as their career choice and the loss of significant expertise across the system with many experienced GPs retiring.

GPs are required to examine the ways in which they are working and making some very difficult decisions within their practices. We are an organisation with a wealth of experience and a desire to work with you to provide appropriate, focussed solutions.
