New Features for FPM Members: Save Time and Boost Productivity

First Practice Management members will soon be able to access a host of new software to help make running your practice a simpler and smoother process – and the best part is, they are all included as part of your existing membership.

The new features are designed to speed up the day-to-day running of a busy practice and make life easier for practice managers. Find out more below:

Staff Schedulers

This is an incredibly flexible tool that will allow you to define staff schedules across the practice. It allows you to define working patterns for individual staff members even if they work different shift patterns, times or days.

You can use the staff categories to easily see who is working when and make sure you have the appropriate cover when leave is requested. This easy-to-use tool transforms scheduling staff rotas into a quick and easy process.

Drug Managers

Keep track of every aspect of managing drugs in your surgery with this fully compliant browser-based system, from delivery to administering and everything in between. You can also run reports and audits using the tool.

Fridge Monitors

This tool allows you to monitor the temperature of your fridges, setting minimum and maximum temperatures, and keep track of the results. It also lets you set up schedules and assign staff to record and log fridge temperatures. Plus, graphical reports allow staff to track temperatures over time and prevent failures before they happen.

Holiday Planners

Holiday planner

One of the major headaches of practice management is holiday allocation. This time-saving tool enables you to manage all of your staff holidays and absence, and is viewable in an easy-to-read calendar format.

You can organise absences by type, such as holiday, study etc., and filter them by date, type of absence and individual staff member. The Holiday Planner can also be used to generate reports, meaning you can easily view the annual holiday plans and allocation for all of your staff members.

Room Diary

Room diary

Organise and manage your practice’s room booking rota. This tool allows you to see which rooms are available when and book them quickly and easily - you can also filter the diary by room and date to make the process as quick and easy as possible.

Drug Managers

Keep track of every aspect of managing drugs in your surgery with this fully compliant browser-based system, from delivery to administering and everything in between. You can also run reports and audits using the tool.

Drug Manager can search the NHS drug dictionary to add drugs to the system, and allows you to easily keep track of which delivery specific drugs came from. You can also log which actions were taken with the drugs, including administering, destroying, transferring or returning the drug.

Fridge Monitors

Fridge monitor

This tool allows you to monitor the temperature of your fridges, setting minimum and maximum temperatures, and keep track of the results. It also lets you set up schedules and assign staff to record and log fridge temperatures.

Plus, easy-to-understand graphical reports allow staff to track fridge temperatures over time and prevent failures before they can occur.

To-Do Lists

Create to-do lists for yourself or other staff members, as well as repeating check-list items for tasks around the surgery. Checklist items are audited, meaning that a record of activity is maintained within the system.

These new features are in addition to the many existing benefits of membership such as a library of fully up-to-date policies and procedures, a selection of invaluable toolkits and expert HR guidance. Existing members won’t have to do anything at all – these tools will simply be added to your membership. The new features will be integrated in the near future, making your FPM membership even better value than ever.

If you’re not an FPM member and are interested in accessing these time-saving tools, why not take a look at more information about the benefits of membership and how to subscribe.
