Support We Provide
PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT SERVICE
This confidential service provides support and guidance to GPs, Practice Managers, and other members. If you are struggling with internal strife within a partnership, burnout, or your personal workload is threatening to become unmanageable our Professional support offices can provide you with agile support tailored to your specific needs.
LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT SUPPORT
Our Leadership and Management Support Service is there to support the 'team' when things have become difficult and may lead to serious problems, or when there is an issue too difficult to deal with alone. When requested, the LMC will set up an initial meeting to discuss the issue and then develop a plan with you to work towards resolution. We also provide a scalable service to support conflict resolution and improved business performance.
FREEDOM TO SPEAK UP GUARDIAN
The LMC is providing a Speak Up Guardian Service for General Practice in Devon through our network of trained Speak Up Guardians. The role of the Speak Up Guardian is to empower colleagues to speak up about anything which they think affects the quality of patient care or staff experience and to tackle barriers to speaking up where found. Any member of the practice team can access this service.
Developing Individuals to enhance professional performance.
We are currently running a dedicated GP Coaching Programme funded by NHS England. It is primarily aimed at GPs who have reached a crossroads in their career and would value a series of structured sessions to support their development. The scheme can be accessed directly through the LMC office and following an initial telephone discussion to assess suitability, GPs will be offered up to 4 x 1 hour coaching sessions with an ILM5 or equivalent level qualified coach.
