The Practice Manager role is a varied one but the main part for me in the Practice Management team is with people. I give all trainees and new staff an induction to Maywood and deal with the day to day running of the practice. I am currently researching and gradually implementing some changes to make it easier for patients with Dementia and visual impairments when visiting the practice. I am registered Partially Sighted myself so I know how difficult it can be. I am also a ‘Dementia Friend’.
The Practice Manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The Practice Manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
