Recognised by ILM and City & Guilds as an approved centre of education within the primary care sector, the PMA understand training needs in general practice and have supported the development of NHS staff for many years.

We have successfully engaged thousands of your colleagues to bridge gaps in skills and knowledge through the creation and delivery of a comprehensive selection of workshops.

Our workshops are organised at local level – providing a convenient way to deliver consistent training to practices across a region, while providing the chance for staff to network and share best practice.

Workshops are one to three days in duration, carrying 6 CPD points per day. We also deliver 2-hour masterclasses providing concise updates for staff in a convenient window of time.

ILM will award those attending any six PMA workshops with the prestigious ‘ILM Excellence in Practice Management’ certificate.

If you are interested in organising workshops or masterclasses for your local practices, please get in touch.

As an ILM and City & Guilds accredited centre, the PMA seeks to facilitate and promote best practice, offering education and support to those involved in primary care.

New Care Models – Working at Scale

Working at Scale has become a key driver across general practice and all other areas of the wider NHS – presenting opportunities for new ways of working and for the development of new services all driven by the goal of improving patient care. ‘At Scale’ provision of care, will increasingly see practices shift towards collaborative working models – formal mergers, partnerships and federations and Multi-Specialty Community Providers (MCPs) – key advantages of this approach are the ability for practices to build on their strengths, improve their reach and also share the workload.
