  • Dr Deen Mirza, a self-help author for GPs, has written several books about time management in the consultation. He now presents ‘The Eight Phases Time Management Model for GPs’ in a one day seminar. This course adapts the time management literature geared for a corporate context to a medical setting. Based on the different periods of the GP’s working day, different aims for each non patient facing phase are outlined, to match energy with task complexity. Deen presents methods to achieve efficiency with patients during clinics are described in depth, based on interviews with fast and slow GPs. Techniques to improve quicker but more qualitative documentation are demonstrated. Deen outlines how we can balance the RCGP, defence organisations and GMC ideals of patient care against the chaotic clinical reality of primary care today.
