#48: Primary Care Project Management with Matthew Gibbons Part 1

Matthew Gibbons is a Project and Operations Manager and part of the Time for Care NHS England Sustainable Improvement Faculty. His background is in Software Engineering, and as he branched out into self-employment he discovered himself in Primary Care as the Business and Network Manager for Watergate Primary Care Network in Cornwall.

Matthew joins me today for Part 1 of 2 episodes where we talk about Project Management in all it’s glory. We talk about the difference between project management and the project manager, why projects fail and how you define a project. Matthew shares his advice on allowing time and rigour to be applied in order to achieve what you set out to, and that project management doesn’t have to be difficult, it can be simple and straight forward.


“One of key reasons why some projects fail is not being clear about what you are trying to do.” Matthew Gibbons
