With all the regulatory and compliance changes, what advice can you give about keeping abreast of all the legal and financial implications?

Julie Price, Head of Risk Management and Education Consultancy, describes the resources available for GP organisations to help keep up-to-date with regulatory changes.


A real challenge for our general practices is keeping up to date with regulation changes. Gosh, it’s quite a quest. But the Medical Protection has information that can help you with this via the website. On the website there are risk management articles, there are our journals, including Practice Matters which is particularly for general practice and contains many risk management system improvement articles. There’s also a series of fact sheets which are one page documents on particular subject that I’m sure you’ll find really useful. So for example, when to use a chaperone, when to use texting, what about faxing and emailing, and consent. Really useful documents and I’d encourage all practices to just go on and read those, really useful. On an individual basis, if you’ve got a particular concern, you can always contact a medico-legal advisor who is available 24 hours a day. And particularly for our corporate groups and our federations, in this changing face of general practice, this information on the website is really of paramount importance to you. Do go and visit and it is open to members and non member and can be accessed by all so I encourage you to go on and have a real look at it and get some information that you need, really to help you keep abreast with this really difficult challenge that we’re all facing.
