What past participants say about the programme

My confidence as a partner has increased exponentially because of this programme. It has given me time and space to be able to consider what I am actually meant to be doing and has been invaluable.

GP & Partner at Lisson Grove Health Centre

Pathway to Partnership helped us develop a clear vision and culture. We feel more galvanised and positive as a result, which has had a huge impact on day-to-day working in the practice.
