Conference 2021 will enable you to discuss and explore how to meet the new challenges for managers in General Practice. We hope you have a good day, with some excellent and thought-provoking speakers and some excellent workstreams plus the opportunity to network with the exhibitors and of course, with fellow delegates for 2021. We have also added a number of elements that will enable you to invest some time in your own wellbeing and resilience.
The third South Yorkshire Practice Managers Conference 2021 will help answer some of your most pressing issues and concerns, as well as providing practical tips for improving your practice.
The conference offers multiple opportunities to learn, knowledge share with peers, and to generate real momentum for change in your practice, partnership or PCN. The programme has been developed through research across the region.
The third South Yorkshire Practice Managers Conference 2021 has moved to Sheffield – and has been created to provide General Practice health professionals with access to new ideas, new ways of doing things, to build new relationships and create new partnerships. Our goal was to create a programme that is relevant and timely, offering practical insights.
The Simon Kirby Inspirational Awards
Simon Kirby was a practice manager and locality manager in Sheffield. He sadly passed away from ischaemic heart disease last March. He was a much loved and respected practice manager and was held in high regard but was also a good friend to many in the practice management community. He is greatly missed. This award is in memory of Simon and all other practice managers that are no longer with us but whose work and approach to the job continues to inspire us.
There are 2 categories for the awards
- Inspirational Practice Manager
This award is to recognise a practice manager who has gone above and beyond in their role and for their team. It is for someone who is recognised by their practice or colleagues for role modelling good management and who they would like to honour.
- Rising Star
This award is for someone new to the role or beginning the journey into practice management who is showing a real talent for the job. It is for someone who is enthusiastic, willing to learn and who is brave in putting themselves forward to tackle the challenges of the role.
