    About the trainer:
    Stephen left mainstream practice management after 28 years and has his own consultancy delivering support to GP services. Recently he has supported a number GP and dental practices throughout the UK, successfully leading them to pass their CQC inspections.

    Stephen has extensive experience in practice management, in both military and civilian environments, and has a successful record in supporting practices that have been underachieving.


    "We recently engaged Stephen to work with us on a part-time basis to support us in several challenges the practice faced and found that he was easy to work with. Stephen was invaluable in helping us in several key areas, including CQC, Recruitment, Change Management, Business Management, Infection Control, Soft Facilities Management and Health & Safety, among others. Stephen is very approachable, punctual and reliable. He has helped us make huge strides in the right direction. We have been very happy with the service Stephen provided to St John’s Medical Centre and we have no hesitation in recommending him."

    "I cannot speak highly enough of Steve Brown, since working with me in April 2016 he has led all three of my practices in CQC inspections. This was no mean feat; he was instrumental in all areas of preparation, including staff training. The result being that all three surgeries passed. Finally, he identified one of my staff as a potential manager and has been training her for the last six months. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Steve Brown to my healthcare colleagues."
