Free Event, Primary Care Direct - A Wellbeing Occasion for Practice Management Staff

Sponsored by Quality Compliance Systems, Moodbeam and Circular Wave, Primary Care Direct are inviting you to the launch of our Wellbeing Service on Thursday 19 November 17.30-19.00 via Teams.

It’s fair to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has left many practice management staff feeling drained, overwhelmed and even stressed to breaking point in some roles. Practice managers and PCN leads have told us that they have experienced feeling helpless, feeling anxious or depressed, and feeling ‘guilty’ for taking time out when you know your team are stretched.

Without good wellbeing, there cannot be good patient care.  Strong, resilient wellbeing is needed now more than ever in primary care and our free ‘All About You – A Wellbeing Occasion for Practice Management Staff’ could be just the treatment you need and deserve.

Book your free place by Monday 16 November 2020  here.


Each month, our Head of Primary Care, Tracy Green will be speaking to healthcare professionals to empower General Practitioners with the latest expert insights in our ''QCS General Practice Podcast". You can find all the previous eposides here
