Shared Managers can be full time or each Practice Manager making themselves available for say just a couple of hours every week to help others where needed.

Where finances permit, Roving Managers whether full time or part time will prove to be useful. These can easily be retired managers giving a few hours of their time to the PCN.

One full time Roving Manager should be able to look after 10 practices and maybe more if everyone has reached a good standard. Alternatively, 2-3 PCNs can band together to employ one Roving Manager between them.

Shared tasks:

  1. Troubleshooting
  2. Take up slack
  3. Emergency cover
  4. Manage staff training
