Glebe Road Surgery
Glebe Road Surgery is a large, thriving and expanding practice in the heart of Barnes.
The surgery, which has just under 10,000 patients on its books, is a busy operation with six partners and 15 other members of staff.
It is an approved training practice which helps doctors in their last stage of preparation to become GPs. It currently has two GP Registrars and two Foundation Year 2 doctors from Imperial College London and Kingston Hospital.
With its special training responsibilities, it is vital that Glebe Road Surgery runs as efficiently as possible to maintain its high standards of healthcare and great levels of service.
Although the six partners’ payroll is dealt with separately, Finance Administrator Claire Byrne uses IRIS GP Payroll for all other members of staff and finds it very helpful. She explains why it is perfect for a practice the size of Glebe Road Surgery.
“IRIS GP Payroll was already up and running when I joined the practice and I cannot fault it. Before it was installed it was well researched and it was decided that this was the best available for a practice this size.
“It was very easy to pick up. It is extremely user friendly, everything is set out very clearly for you to understand even if you are not very technical.
“It is also very quick. The payroll takes me around an hour to complete but it could be even quicker. I’m going through a period of having things to add or takeaway each month and it lets me do this easily but if a practice has the same day to day, week on week expenses it can literally be done at the touch of the button. It is so simple.
“We have an accountant who deals with our normal year end processes and he finds our system excellent. Everything is just there, ready and waiting for him.
“Because the software is so simple and always does what you ask it to do, I’ve never really had a problem with it and that speaks volumes. I’ve had to get to grips with Statutory Maternity Pay recently, which I’d never had to tackle before, but once I had familiarised myself with what needed to be done and I knew which button to press it was fine!
“I would definitely recommend IRIS GP Payroll to anyone. It is easy to use, easy to learn and very user friendly.”
