Electronic signature pads can now be used as a replacement for hard copy GP17pr forms
A specialist practice management software company based in Newcastle has become the first to gain accreditation in Scotland for the use of its Wireless Signature Pad technology as a replacement for the paper GP17pr form.

Many of our clients have been excited about finally being free of copious amount of paper, costly and time-consuming filing processes; which with our system, they can now replace with an efficient, robust and secure solution.
“I am delighted to be able to offer our clients this extra service, and look forward to hearing more success stories from our current and future clients.”
In addition to their Wireless Signature Pad, Systems for Dentists offer a fully featured and agile dental practice management system, which offers clients the benefits of reducing administration times, providing the perfect operational platform to assist accurate claiming of NHS Dental charges and increase dental practice productivity.
