The PMA is a UK-wide membership body that provides insight, training, education and interaction opportunities for all those involved in general practice.
The Association provides a wide selection of workshops, web workshops, apprenticeship standards, diploma courses, e-learning programmes, webinars and podcasts specifically created for the primary care workforce in line with the recommendations set out in the General Practice Forward View (GPFV) and the NHS 10-year plan.
Having worked with NHS organisations over many years, the PMAs comprehensive range of workshops and qualifications cover all aspects of business management, people management and practice skills and have benefited thousands of clinical and non-clinical workers in the healthcare sector.
The PMA was founded to provide the non-clinical workforce in primary care with a comprehensive selection of self-development tools and support services. It has now reached a UK-wide membership of over 25,000.
Working closely with many organisations pertinent to Primary Care, the PMA provides continuous support to NHS England, NHS Digital, NHSx, HEE, RCGP and others. Interest from LMCs and CCGs in the support services offered has been phenomenal.
The PMA originally developed a series of non-clinical workshops for the RCGP. The first workshops had a strong business focus providing GPs with the commercial insight required for modern NHS surgeries.
The need for further training and development support within the NHS soon became apparent. Engagement with Practice Managers and other non-clinical workers within Primary Care grew quickly, leading the PMA to invest heavily in training and other support services specifically tailored to the needs of PMA members.
Today’s offerings include a vast array of workshops, web workshops, apprenticeship standards, diplomas, e-learning programmes, webinars, podcasts, consultancy and conference management services.
