"First Practice Management is really helpful and supportive, and a great sounding board - can't recommend the service highly enough - and the membership fee which gives you access to all of the policies and the helpline is cheap at twice the price. And no, I've not been paid to say this!"

"Running a private practice is an isolated role with no colleagues to ask for advice. I found the Protocols Library an invaluable resource during our preparations for CQC registration. Our first inspection went very smoothly thanks to your CQC Inspection spreadsheet. Having all evidence documents listed on one sheet saved so much time and hassle. The Inspection went well even in my absence."
