This event will be relevant to all PMs, Deputy PMs and Business Manager in General Practice.  Matt Perkins, one of our PM Supporters will lead another of his webinars for all those involved in practice management finance. He will be supported by Sue Scott, another of our PM Supporters who also has a lot of experience in managing the finances of practices. As ever, the session will be practical, relevant and Matt’s guidance will be easy to implement.


Keeping your practice financially healthy has rarely been so challenging. With the disappointing contract imposition, alongside the living wage increases and spiralling fixed / variable costs, having control of the practice finances is critical for survival. Whilst we cannot offer magic solutions, we can share and discuss the impact of 24/25 contract changes, ways to ensure you are aware of your practice’s financial position including maximising income and minimising expenses, and to ensure decisions are made for the right reasons to maintain a healthy financial position

We will be recording this session and it will be available, at a cost of £15 for members of Wessex LMCs and £30 for non members, for a limited time by clicking here

If you attend the course the recording will be available, after the event, free of charge on this web page. NB: you must have been marked down as attending, and be logged on to the website to view the file

Mr Matt Perkins
Mr Matt Perkins
Business Manager

Matt has been a Practice Manager for 16 years, coming from an unrelated business background. He does therefore remember what it is like to start in this role with no NHS experience, so is well placed to help any new PMs who might be in that position. If there is an area of his role he enjoys the most, it would be the opertational / financial side, but is happy to listen and help in any way he can.
