Published twice a year, Practice Matters is our designated magazine for GP partners and practice managers.

Our magazine for GP partners and practice managers, Practice Matters, strives to provide an entertaining and informative read that shares important medicolegal advice and practical tips that can be used in practice.

The legislative, financial and regulatory environment that governs general practice becomes more complex by the day. We hope that Practice Matters will help you tiptoe through this minefield.
