Time Management & Personal Effectiveness

Provider CPD Points Duration
Grow Medical from eMedicus Ltd.91 Day

Today's healthcare environment places immense pressures on doctors and healthcare profressionals, who often (if not constantly) find themselves running full tilt, without breaks, coping with inadequate resources, insufficient junior & nursing staff members and untold barriers to even getting the simplest things done. It takes its toll.

  • Feeling like it's impossible to balance clinical & administrative requirements?
  • Struggling to achieve work-life balance?
  • Does work appear to dominate your life?
  • Seems impossible to fight back the encroaching jungle of priorities and workload?
  • Failing to get traction on mission-critical stuff?
  • Feel like you need to achieve more than you are?

These are just some of the typical challenges faced by doctors today and just the sort of issues this course is designed to address... permanently. Time Management & Personal Effectiveness is one of our most referred onto courses for the simple reason that it makes a lasting difference to people's lives. It's practical, filled with insightful advice about managing load, regaining control, achieving goals more easily and working within today's healthcare environment. We truly understand the context of being a consultant or trainee today and that's what makes this course different from any other around. However, it's not JUST the insight that sets it apart. From pre-course assessment to post-course support, it's designed to deliver a transformation.

Extremely Comprehensive Approach

Full one-day programme, delivered by one of a small cohort of very senior tutors because this is work that changes lives and must be right..


Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.

We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 - 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel.

Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.


This is far more than just a course. It is designed to literally transform life under even the most challenging of circumstances and so comes with significant additional support.
