Oxford Handbook of General Practice
Simon & Everitt, Fourth edition, page 101..
"commercial databases (eg www.doctorsbaguk.com) that store data about drugs in the GP's bag can be useful to alert you when drugs go out of date. Record origin, batch number, and expiry date of all drugs administered to patients or dispensed to them to take themselves."

"All GPs should have available, and be able to use the necessary equipment and drugs to enable him/her to respond appropriately to medical emergencies."
♦"The exemplary GP has up-to-date emergency equipment and drugs, and ensures that they are available for any doctor eg.a locum, working in the practice."
♦"The unacceptable GP has insufficient emergency drugs or equipment, or has drugs that are out-of-date."

(RCGP's. Good Medical Practice for General Practitioners July 2008)

Drug logs, audits and fully compliant intelligent electronic CD register, with automated balancing of stock. Safer Management of Controlled Drugs: Changes to Record Keeping Requirements Feb 2008 schedule 15 "The guidance makes clear that if the CDR is held in computerised form the best practice requires that: Safeguards should be incorporated in the software to make sure that the author of each entry is identifiable, entries cannot be altered at a later date, a log of all data entered is kept and can be recalled for audit purposes." All doctors carrying controlled drugs must have individual registers independent of the practice drugs. If using the CD register each doctor must have their own log-in so that the entries are, 'attributable'.

Created by a British GP the site was originally developed out of necessity and used in a busy General Practice. Simply enter the details of your drugs and equipment onto your pages, and leave the rest to us. The average GP may have 25-30 items in their bag, emergency vehicles may have 50-60 items including drugs and equipment. The site can be used for childhood vaccinations and travel vaccines as well.

When you give a drug or vaccine record it online and enter into the audit if you wish there and then. Email reminders and automated ordering when items expire or need replacing up to fourteen days before expiry. Set the recipient of the reminder emails for example to the practice pharmacist if you wish.
Group practices use the pharmacy alert to direct central re ordering to their practice manager, dispensary/pharmacy or responsible practice nurse.

The 'patient drug' function monitors the expiry dates for patients' drugs such as adrenaline pens, glucagon injections, GTN sprays and migraine treatments or as a practice recall reminder for patient vaccination schedules NB. (Explicit patient consent is required to use patient identifiable data on the site).
