  1. I was a practice manager in England I had a structure from day one when the QAF was over ever day the staff and myself were set task to carry on the years structure it worked three years running we gained 100% with accreditation so we had no hidden surprises when our date came
    I also did protocols and polices for other practices and it all help to grow as an area we all worked


    1. sorry – I have only just seen your post, thanks for your feedback. It’s great to hear that practices are working together, I think this is the key to us all reaching targets and hopefully reducing the strain at the same time!
