PCC supports health and care commissioners and provider organisations to manage change through learning, development and knowledge sharing with a focus on primary care, new care models and service transformation. Our services are delivered through a national programme of events and workshops, regional networks and a team of expert advisers.
Association of Medical Secretaries Practice Managers, Administrators and Receptionists (AMSPAR)
Established in 1964 AMSPAR performs two functions. It is a professional membership organisation which recognises both formal qualifications and length of service in a healthcare environment. We also work with City & Guilds to provide a suite of qualifications for non-clinical staff working in the health sector.
It provides a range of services to its members including access to a free legal helpline. Members are kept informed of issues through the newsletters and website.
The Network is run by practice managers, for practice managers to offer support and opportunities to share, develop, and influence.
The Practice Management Network (PMN) is a national community of managers in general practice. We want to influence the development of policy. We want to ensure that as key players in the local NHS, practice managers are engaged, involved and consulted. And we intend to make a fuss if that isn’t the case.
We want to share our wide experience as business managers with our colleagues in practice management and with others in the NHS. We want to promote excellence, provide practical support and identify examples of good practice. We will identify sources of expertise and encourage collaboration.
We will enthusiastically support policy that enables general practice to function more efficiently and contribute to improved standards of healthcare. We will question anything that adds to the burden on general practice or simply gets in the way. We will promote cooperation, understanding and dialogue with policy makers and with other NHS organisations.
We will champion the cause of practice management and the development of ever higher professional standards
