Welcome to the Practice Managers Association

Delivering Excellence in Primary Care Workforce Development

The Practice Managers Association (PMA) is a UK-wide membership body that provides insight, training, education and interaction opportunities for all those involved in general practice.

We provide a wide selection of workshops, apprenticeship standards, diploma courses and e-learning programmes specifically created for the primary care workforce in line with the recommendations set out in the General Practice Forward View (GPFV).

Having worked with NHS organisations over many years, our comprehensive range of workshops and qualifications cover all aspects of business management, people management and practice skills and have benefited thousands of clinical and non-clinical workers in the healthcare sector.

You will be pleased to know that training is only part of what we do. We also offer consultancy services and conference management expertise. Feel free to browse those pages for more information.

We are always here if you need more details so don’t hesitate contact us. We would love to hear from you!

The overall aim of the PMA is to encourage the sharing of knowledge & help those involved in general practice attain the highest standards.

We’d be delighted to welcome you, it’s free to join!

Don’t just take our word for it…

“Each session was well presented and full of useful information. Most notably Practice Managers who had been in the industry a long time felt these sessions highlighted a number of issues and gave lots of ideas and information to help with the day to day running of the practice. Also appreciated was the opportunity to network and gain insight and learning throughout this.”

“Just wanted to say what a truly fantastic job the PMA are doing. It’s so brilliant to be finally recognised for the professionals we are and to find such genuine interest in our role and future. Every session has been valuable – both in providing new information and ideas, but also helping me realise how much we are actually doing right already.”

“Those leading the courses had a high level of expertise in their subject matter which meant that they were able to deal with queries as well as deliver the core agenda, and the courses were very well tailored to the audience, so they were extremely relevant.”

“PMA’s model of recruiting experts in different fields to deliver focused training within the PMA framework is one that has been met with much approval amongst practice managers in the London Borough of Lewisham. Lewisham CEPN will be escalating the evaluation summary to HEE, with our recommendation that they consider commissioning at scale.”
