GP practices and organisations allowed to use GPSoC can choose systems that best suit their needs from a range of four principal system suppliers. These are TPP SystmOne, EMIS Web, InPS Vision and Microtest Evolution.
This means practices get a choice of approved systems and save time by not having to run their own procurement. They benefit from discounts through the central purchase and standardised terms and conditions.
The Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) places the order on their behalf, and the government will pay for most of the essential parts (Lot 1). Under the GPSoC continuity agreement, previously available Lot 2 and Lot 3 products will need to be procured and paid for locally by the CCG.
