Practice managers should massage GPs' egos

Practice managers should boost morale by spending more time praising their GPs, one of their number has said.

Speaking to a group of practice managers at the Primary Care Live conference, Cath McCarthy, the managing partner of Hanham Health, said: 'That culture of saying "You're doing well" doesn't really exist in general practice.

'There's nobody to tell a GP when he's doing well, as he doesn't work for anyone. That's your job.'

Hanham Health offers a range of general practice and minor injury services in eastern Bristol.
