4.1 Management in Primary Care

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 4.1, Management in Primary Care, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

Practices are increasing in size and complexity and it is essential that GPs understand the organisational context in which they work. They need to be able to operate effectively within a team, and in collaboration with a variety of other professionals.

Through teamwork, taking on managerial responsibility, and demonstrating leadership skills, GPs should be able to ensure the best possible outcome for their patients within the resources available.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.
