Dr Neil Paul has long felt that general practice training doesn’t prepare GPs for managing their own business. Despite years of training and 1-1 mentoring with educators there is almost no formal education re management and business.
In conjunction with the University of Liverpool Schools of Management and Medicine he co-developed a series of Masterclasses as a trial of providing the lacking knowledge.
After surveying what needs different people had – we ran three classes: Finance, HR and Marketing.
All were well attended and feedback was excellent. We are currently looking at how to develop this further.
