General practice is central to good health outcomes and system reform.
SEMPHN wants strong primary health care services available to all people in our region – especially those who are vulnerable and/or have chronic health conditions.
Practice Managers can be a key part of managing an effective, efficient and successful general practice.
Practice Managers Network
Practice Managers have the opportunity to join their peers at SEMPHN supported practice network groups across the region. These groups meet two monthly and provide networking opportunities as well as speakers. The groups have access to dedicated online forums (via Basecamp) to further network, share information and interact between meetings.
