Medeconomics is a practice management toolkit, from the publishers of GP magazine. The website supports GPs and practice managers to run their practices more effectively. It can help you maximise practice profits, meet performance targets and provide a high quality service to patients.

Our exclusive Database of GP Fees will help ensure your practice is claiming funding correctly and enables you to benchmark your private fees against those charged by other practices.

Meanwhile, our locum rates can help you establish how much you should be paying GP locums and our guide to preparing for a CQC inspection will make sure you're ready when the inspectors arrive. We also have a new CQC Essentials section, where the CQC provides information on what it looks for in eight key areas when it inspects GP practices

Take a look at our showcase sample articles below and our subscription options on the right to see how Medeconomics can work for you.
