Three general practitioners (GP) have developed an Internet-based service that they believe could automatically generate thousands of pounds of income for family doctors under the new GMS contract. Bradford, England GPs Dr. John Bibby and Dr. Jim Welford, and Dr. Simon Berrisford from Macclesfield, England have spent two years setting up the service. "Personal Medical Advisor," which was launched last month, is an online health and medical monitoring system.
