Coaching

The RCGP understands the current pressures that general practice faces and has a successful track record in coaching and mentoring vulnerable practice teams as part of our practice support service. We have extended our support service to offer individual coaching to all members of the primary care team.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a supportive and developmental process that enables an individual to unlock their full potential and achieve their personal and practice goals. This process is facilitated through a 'coaching conversation' with a skilled coach which may include supportive challenge, guided activities and reflective learning.

What are the benefits?

At an individual level a coachee can benefit from developing self-awareness and achieving their goals, enhancing their confidence, resilience and performance in the workplace. At a practice level this can translate into improved leadership and management and enhanced team function and wellbeing.

Who is eligible?

Any member of the practice team including clinical and non-clinical staff.

How does it work?

The service is provided by a specially trained cohort of practice support advisers and trainers who are all highly experienced primary care professionals and includes: GPs, practice nurses, practice managers and pharmacists. We understand the challenges that you face and the context of your work.

This is a bespoke service that can be fully tailored to meet your needs, but in general we would recommend a minimum of four sessions over a period of six months. Sessions can be face to face or remote via telephone, Skype or Zoom, at a pace and time that suits you. You can opt for a coach who is a peer or a coach from a different discipline.

All coaching conversations are confidential.

Coach training and ongoing supervision is provided by the Faculty of Medical Coaches.
