Doctorsbaguk is a Periodic Automated Replenishment (PAR) system used by all types of Health Professionals , Hospitals, Clinics, Care Providers, Health Organisations, Pharmacists, NHS and private providers worldwide. Used to manage your stocks of drugs, equipment and consumables in your clinics, hospitals and emergency services. Your items are entered onto the system initially, every time you use an item you log on and log it. The system will send you an automated email 2 weeks before the expiry date or when your stock level reaches a critical level set by you ('low stock warning'). If you check the ‘pharmacy alert’ for any item an automated order for that item will go to your pharmacy or supplier (having prior agreement with them), when it reaches a critical stock level. You can add as many pharmacies and suppliers to the system you like, or address the orders to your supplies, procurement office. Hence you never have to worry about your drugs being out of date or out of stock again !
AuditPal is a unique medical audit, study tool. Where you can create a clinical audit or study electronically, and upload any evidence or research to support your audit standards. Then you add patients to the audit as you see them to use yourself. Discuss the results and write the conclusions ready for re-audit. AuditPal will produce the graphs and complete audit for you. The exciting feature is putting the audit onto our public audit page to share and other DBUK members from around the world to see and apply to join, only those members you agree to can join, (you can see their qualifications and professional interests). You close the audit to any further additions when you have enough data, write the conclusions and publish on our completed audits page. Members contributing will be listed. Contributors are notified when the audit is published. AuditPal only members can log in directly by tapping the AuditPal logo at the top right hand side of the home page.

SINGLE user DBUK membership allows access to the full site , including all the features plus AuditPal for a single user or log-in. GROUP membership allows multiple users from the same practice or organisation, with one administrator.

You can order any item on your inventory manually at any time, by using the green order button at the side of the item (if this is red you have not chosen a pharmacy/supplier) as long as you have prior agreement with the pharmacist or supplier to do so, this will usually mean signing a 'POM' supply agreement form for drugs either online on the Pharmacy’s website or a printed version. Agree your invoicing and arrangements with the Pharmacy and ask them which email address they would like orders to go to and put this address in your ‘Pharmacy management’ page on the site. When the ‘Pharmacy Alert’ is toggled for an item on orders will go through automatically just before expiry or on reaching your critical stock level. Remember you can have a different supplier or Pharmacy for each individual item.
When you add a new item or edit an item, if you check the ‘Pharmacy Alert’ box that means that when the item reaches the critical stock level set by you or 14 days before the expiry date, an email will be sent to your chosen Pharmacy or the person that orders your stock (this can be your Purchasing Department) simply put their name and email address in as a ‘Pharmacy’ on the Pharmacy Management page.
