Essex LMCs Practice Manager Supporter Scheme
North & South Essex LMCs are delighted to offer support to Practice Managers through our Essex Practice Manager Supporter Scheme.
The Practice Manage Supporter Scheme (PMSS) offers a dedicated support and advice service to Practice Managers/PCN Managers, recognising the unique challenges they face and helping safeguard their well-being. The Practice Manager Supporters will be there to lend a helping hand, ensuring that Practice/PCN Managers have the resources and guidance they need to navigate the demands of their roles.
Initially set up to support Practice Managers, the scheme has been extended to offer the same support to PCN Managers. Advice, support, and peer to peer Personal Development Reviews are available for new, experienced and assistant/ deputy practice managers and PCN Managers in Essex. All interactions are treated with the utmost confidentiality. The information you share with your chosen supporter remains strictly between you and them.
There are six Practice Managers and one PCN Manager Supporter, who are actively working across different regions of the county. Practice/PCN Managers can benefit from this scheme without any associated costs. The attached link provides further information and guidance on how to contact a Supporter.
What special skills and general advice can Supporters offer?
- An informal chat with new Practice Managers and assistant Practice Managers
- Coaching & Mentoring
- Tips on resilience for you and your team

It is important to note that the supporters are not able to offer any legal advice but can signpost their colleagues towards useful resources and assistance.
