Risca & Newbridge Surgeries

A brilliant payroll package for GPs The Risca Surgery and the Newbridge Surgery in Newport, South Wales are extremely busy practices that look after the welfare of more than 15,000 patients. One of the Managing Partner’s many tasks is to manage the payroll for the practice’s 6 partners, 7 salaried GPs and 50 staff. Gwyn Jones joined the practice in 1993 with no direct NHS experience. This was crucial for the partners; they considered his wide experience in business would result in a far more efficiently run practice. He said “When I joined the practice, the payroll was calculated manually which was both time consuming and open to inaccuracies. It seemed obvious that we needed to implement a specialised payroll system and this is where my contacts with other Practice Managers was extremely useful. They recommended IRIS GP Payroll and the fact that it had been developed by a GP was a crucial factor in our decision to install it.”
