Coaching for GPs
For those GPs who are also on the Board of a Clinical Commissioning Group the balancing of clinical practice with their corporate roles, can cause real tensions.
Through the recent health reforms increasing numbers of GPs have found themselves on the Board of a Clinical Commissioning Group whilst also working in clinical practice. Balancing corporate roles with the demands of a busy surgery can be challenging. Agencia has provided coaching and organisational development support to GPs as they pick up these new leadership roles. In the Barnsley area such work prompted the comment:
“Though I have really enjoyed working at a whole systems / commissioner level I am by training a GP. The coaching support I had from Agencia provided a great forum for thinking through new ways of balancing the corporate and the clinical responsibilities”.
