Several months after the official formation of Primary Care Networks, it seems a good time to review how things are going.
This week’s updated FPM policy documents include a very useful HR-related resource for organising maternity leave.
It's that time again! We've put together a handy awareness days calendar detailing some of the key days coming up in December, and links to the official pages so you can get involved too.
In the past week I’ve felt like a third member of the Proclaimers. I may not have walked 500 miles, but I’ve travelled not only 500 but also 500 more, venturing up and down the country to deliver Thornfields training and facilitation services to Primary Care teams.
It's that time of year again - the prestigious FPM Practice Management Salary Survey is back!
This week’s updated FPM policy documents include a very useful HR-related resource for managing poor work performance issues.
At FPM we are always keen to celebrate the amazing work Primary Care teams do for their patients. That’s why we’re starting a new feature that showcases the fantastic things GP Practices are doing in their communities and the services they’re particularly proud of.
As we get ready for 2020, FPM has uploaded Holiday Record Organisers for next year to our Policies and Procedure Library. Download them now to get ahead of staff requests for holidays and make sure you’re prepared for the year ahead.
How many times do we wish for some light relief from our hectic workload? I came across some ‘new medical terminology’ recently and thought I would share it with my fellow PMs – I hope you enjoy it!
The word “Tribunal” is bandied around fairly commonly in the workplace, but what do they actually involve and how likely are you to ever have to attend one?
Our Removal of Patient from List Policy and Shared Parental Leave Policy are the latest documents to be updated in our Policy Library. FPM works with Practice Managers to make sure we provide the most up-to-date information to members.
With a swirling Catherine wheel of negativity seeming to surround the NHS, we think it’s time to fire a rocket into the November night sky and illuminate the brilliant work Primary Care teams do in this country.
We know that GP practices are under constant pressure to implement new initiatives and ease the pressure of patient demand in primary care, often relying on limited services and resources.
