Over my career, I have written over 20 books, and sold over 40,000 copies.

2018 will saw my first new book published for my six years.

The Late Dr Dilys Jones and I had finished writing a book when she was taken ill in late 2017. This book has now been published in Dilys’ memory and all proceeds will go to charity in her memory. For those of you who have been influenced by her, or even perhaps by me, I hope you will find this book useful and a fitting tribute.

Information Governance, Technology and Management for General Practice: a guide to staying out of trouble

Information technology is a key tool for GP practices in providing the best possible care for their patients by having the right information at the right time in the right place. But are you and your colleagues getting the best results from your computers and the information they provide?

This book will help ensure that you are. Of benefit to all those working in general practice, this clear and straightforward text sets out the pitfalls and tried and tested solutions for Information Governance, Information Technology and Information Management. For those in other parts of the health and care system, regulation and governance requirements regarding the use of clinical information and its protection are increasing, and there are many general points which will apply to your practice as well.
