A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Business plans/business planning

A Business Plan is a document that helps a business to look ahead, allocate resources, focus on key points, and prepare for problems and opportunities.

In the past it was not generally necessary for general practices to have a Business Plan, because the environment was stable. But today things are less predictable, and planning for the future becomes almost essential.

To help Practices decide whether and how to develop a Business Plan, we have developed a Business Planning toolkit which is in the Members section. Members click here to access the toolkit. If you are not a Member, click here for information about the benefits of membership and how to subscribe.
