Most read tools and resources of 2011

Here at Pulse we are always looking for new tools and resources that we can provide on the site, here are some of the most popular from the year. Leading the field is a list of payments due to practices after an error in the QMAS system dating back seven years led to a shortfall in payments. With the average GP practice owing around £3,400, including interest, this was a popular list.
