Hi, I am Patricia Lee (Trish)

I have over 30 years experience within the NHS Primary Care and have gained extensive knowledge of a wide range of roles within a GP Surgery. These roles include Reception, Medical Secretary, Auditing, Patient Liaison Officer, through to a Practice Manager with 6 years experience. My Practice Manager role was based in a semi-rural, single-handed GP Practice with a 4,000 Patient list size, Dispensary and auxiliary Staff members. I began the PM role by enrolling on many courses myself, to gain as much knowledge with CQRS, QOF, Health & Safety, Discipline & Primary Care Law, Appraisal Training and many more. I found that my passion was to support and help all staff to develop and gain qualifications making our Surgery one of true professionalism which was reflected in our achievements. A mostly new Dispensing team was employed and various courses were completed by all members of staff. The DDA (Dispensing Doctors Association) was duly joined successfully. With my previous experience, I understand the difficult challenges ahead for any new PM. I have many years experience with both EMIS Web and Systmone more latterly. I enjoy helping colleagues and I am always keen to share my experiences from the years which I have been working within the ever changing NHS. Please do contact me if you would like a chat or set up a meeting. I would be very happy to provide support for you, it can be a lonely role. Away from work I am extremely active and regularly swim, cycle and I enjoy kayaking in the River Colne, which is close to my home. Also I have been volunteering as a Reader with the local Colchester & District Talking Newspapers for the Blind since 2009.
