Wessex LMCs has recognised the value of Practice/Business Managers to General Practices within Wessex and has supported an initiative to develop a system of appraisal for them.  The Practice Managers’ Supporters Scheme and the linked Appraisal Scheme have been based, with kind permission, on the scheme in Scotland, developed by Marion Foster.

Revalidation / Appraisals

General practice is changing, and practice nursing teams are evolving to meet the increasing demands and pressures currently facing primary care. As a result, many general practice nurses (GPNs) are taking on more advanced roles, and more routine tasks are often delegated to health care assistants.

Revalidation / Appraisals

To ensure the provision of high quality safe care for patients it is essential that all clinicians are competent, with clarity around roles and responsibilities and ensuring that they can provide evidence of continuous professional development (CPD). This also fits with the NMCs recommendations for revalidation.
