Vanessa Young

Practice Manager, The Vine Medical Centre

I have been a practice manager for approximately 20 years,  I have been in my current practice for nearly 8 years.  It is a small  practice with 6500 patients, we have 2 partners and 2 salaried GPs.  I work here for 3 days per week and assisted by a great team which enables me to pursue other interests outside of the practice but still work related.  For  2 days per week  I am seconded to NHSD as a practice manager specialist matter expert. This means that I advise on most matters that will affect general practice.  I am the chair for EMIS NUG  and I also organise their conferences.  I am the co-chair for the Practice Management network and the Practice Manager representative for our Primary Care Network.

When I am not working I like to relax by working or spending time with my two young grandsons.
