Leadership & Management Support Devon LMC

Our Leadership and Management Support Service is there to support the ‘team’ when things have become difficult and may lead to serious problems, or when there is an issue too difficult to deal with alone. When requested, the LMC will set up an initial meeting to discuss the issue and then develop a plan with you to work towards resolution.

Mentoring & Peer Support Devon LMC

Bringing together the wisdom and experience of our members to inspire and nurture the next generation of leaders in General Practice. For General Practitioners – The LMC is currently setting up a Mentoring Scheme specifically for GPs new to General Practice and having undertaken the Next Generation GP Leadership Programme. To inspire and nurture the next generation we are seeking GP volunteers to register as mentors which will allow the LMC Support Hub to match mentors with mentees. If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you! For Practice Managers – There is an active network of very experienced Practice Managers who can be called upon for peer support for those Managers new to the role or struggling with professional challenges. We have recently set up an Action Learning Set for a group of Practice Managers new to General Practice and who have recently completed our ‘Introduction to General Practice Course’.

It is primarily aimed at GPs who have reached a crossroads in their career and would value a series of structured sessions to support their development.
