FMLM 360 - FAQs

Please take time to read the FAQs below.  These will answer the most commonly asked questions about the scheme.

How do I know which level is right for me?

FMLM and Silvermaple have developed the 360 degree tool at several levels to suit doctors at different leadership responsibilities. The following describes each level and who it might be most appropriate to:

  • Team members – individuals who have a key role as part of a team but no formal line management responsibility. This might include postgraduate trainees.
  • Team leadership – individuals who are required to take on either a formal or informal leadership role within their team. Examples would be lead partners in general practice and consultants leading teams.
  • Operational leadership – individuals responsible for leading a number of teams, a department, or a functional area. Examples might include department heads and leaders of federations of general practices.
  • Strategic leadership – individuals required to perform at board level within their organisation. This might include individuals with senior roles in national or regional organisations, commissioners, and medical directors of hospital trusts.

Clearly there is overlap between these levels, and every doctor’s practice will be unique to them; we would be happy to discuss which level is most appropriate to your appointment.
