100 complimentary subscriptions give away for London GPs

As you are all aware by now, London NHS regions will no longer be funding any apprasial and revalidation toolkits from April 2016.

To celebrate this decision, we are going to offer 1 year complimentary subscriptions to a randomly selected  group of 100 London GPs.

Remember that we do not take any payment details from you upon signing up.

Our rates are £39.99 per year and we also include a patient survey report in that price. So a potential saving of £50 on top of our reduced prices.

Give us a try, you never know you might be the lucky recipient of a free subscription.

Happy joining GP Tools !

GP Tools attains ISO 27001 Certification

GP Tools is ISO 27001 certified.

ISO-27001

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security. The standard is awarded to organisations that have proved they have an effective information security management system (ISMS) in place to deal with their own and others sensitive information.
An ISMS is a “systematic approach to managing confidential or sensitive corporate information so that it remains secure.” Organisations such as ours, that deal with large volumes of data – need to have to a system in place that guarantees we can ensure your information is kept secure at all times. Having gained the ISO 27001 standard means that our ISMS has been assessed against a rigorous set of requirements, and is fully capable of ensuring the safety of your information.

Why have we been certified?

As technology advances, and more of us do business through the web, the cloud and other digital arenas, information security becomes more and more important. You, the user are the most important thing to us, so we wanted to ensure not only that our ISMS was operating to the highest standards, but that we were accredited to offer you peace of mind that you can trust us to keep your information safe.

What does it mean for you?

Gaining the ISO 27001 is proof that we are serious about information security and devoted to ensuring that any information you trust us with is always kept safe and secure, and will not be accessible by anyone else. We hope this provides you with peace of mind that we are vigilant, tenacious and determined in the protection of your data.

Innovative Patient e – survey now live

Innovative Patient e – survey now live

You asked for it and we have delivered !
A truly one of a kind and innovative way to conduct your patient surveys. Never before has something like this been tried. We think it is a real game changer. 
We have simplified the process of conducting patient surveys : just follow the instructions under ‘patient e – survey’ in the ‘analysing your practice menu’. 
Just to point out you do NOT have to collect patient email addresses to use this survey. You simply hand them an instruction sheet and the rest is done by the system.

Happy surveying 😉
