"We recently had a 2 day assessment of our practice, specifically focussing upon the management. We have all found it hugely beneficial in highlighting areas for improvement. A fresh pair of eyes has been invaluable in identifying weaknesses in our structure, and also training needs for staff."

Dr Jonathan Smith, South Hetton

"I found the feedback form the two days invaluable. It was very helpful to have external confirmation of the issues we are facing and has enabled us to tackle them. Thanks again for your input"

Testimonials

My practice is delighted with the consultancy service from First Practice Management. The practice needed to review its options in the light of rising demand and budget reductions. Ruth spent a day with us and our staff following careful preparation. Her professional and reassuring approach was ideal for us and we now have a sense of direction, a list of options to follow up and, most importantly, increased team morale. I recommend this service wholeheartedly to any practice wanting to take stock and get everyone on board for change.

Dr Greg Connor, Partner, The Nelson Practice

"Thank you so very much for all your input on Tuesday. The feedback from all my colleagues including doctors was that it was excellent, very enlightening and thought provoking. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience even though we were not looking forward to it. Your knowledge, advice and support was second to none and we all came away feeling very good about ourselves, so thank you again."
