Clear Problem: - Company: Doctors Surgery Relocating: Kingston Needs: To keep all the patients details on a computer data base with appropriate back up system. Real User: Dr Steer Accessibility: This is strictly confident to Dr Steer only Solution: - This is a small but established surgery but has decided to go paperless.

I had little feedback, but when I worked on it I feel the layout and the programme was improved. Further Enhancements: Now I can see the hours and rate of pay clearly. I would like to use the system to work out my NIC and tax payments. Then the money paid net to the employees will be worked out. Each worker can then have a mini print out of each weeks showing his/her gross pay, tax, NI contributes and most importantly his/her home pay. ...read more.
