Medical transcription and dictation is one area where surgeries and primary care trusts currently have complete control and where money can be effectively saved.

Transcription Global are aware that the current coalition government’s announcements of increased financial responsibility for GP’s means that budgets will need graphic reassessment, and without doubt, money will have to be saved. The Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has announced the abolition of 152 primary care trusts by 2013, meaning the £80 billion NHS budget is going to be handed directly to GP’s. Practice Managers will then need to ensure that budgets and business strategy run smoothly and within the constraints of this difficult transitional period.
