#30: Leadership in Practice with Gary Hughes

This is Gary Hughes second appearance on The Business of Healthcare Podcast. He joined me back in Episode 2 where he shared a behind-the-scenes look at his role as Practice Manager, the opportunities for growth and some of the challenges he has faced. If you haven’t already, definitely have a listen to the episode here.


Gary joins me again to tell us all about his brand-new book ‘Leadership in Practice’. Gary tells us how the concept of the book started as weekly LinkedIn posts. The book is for those working in healthcare in a leadership role, but is also for those looking for inspiration, motivation, leadership and management advice. It is full of practical advice as well as light-hearted funny moments. He also shares the goals for his practice over the next 12 months, and the key lessons he has learnt from his Primary Care Network.


“I’ve got something to say to Practice Managers and I enjoy writing, so I thought I’d put a post on LinkedIn, and that has led to my book.” – Gary Hughes
