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, offering accessible information and practical resources. 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 making the most of new earning opportunities.

Meanwhile, our new HR Toolkit, is full of practical advice, along with hundreds of downloadable templates including policies, letters and checklists, to help you manage all the HR situations your practice is likely to face. Produced by the CIPD, the professional body for HR, the toolkit is regularly updated to reflect changes to legislation and regulartions.
