Practice Manager, The Vine Medical Centre
I have been a practice manager for approximately 20 years, I have been in my current practice for nearly 8 years. It is a small practice with 6500 patients, we have 2 partners and 2 salaried GPs. I work here for 3 days per week and assisted by a great team which enables me to pursue other interests outside of the practice but still work related. For 2 days per week I am seconded to NHSD as a practice manager specialist matter expert. This means that I advise on most matters that will affect general practice. I am the chair for EMIS NUG and I also organise their conferences. I am the co-chair for the Practice Management network and the Practice Manager representative for our Primary Care Network.
When I am not working I like to relax by working or spending time with my two young grandsons.
