GPDocs is a smart online system for managing general practice policies and procedures. We provide a core set of documentation, work with each practice to tailor it to their circumstances, and publish it to an individualised, password protected website. This is backed up with regular emails advising practices of any upcoming changes to legislation or accreditation standards, and reminding them which topics are up for review next. We then take care of all changes, updates, and ongoing research to keep their policies and procedures up-to-date - freeing up staff to focus on patients, not paperwork.
