Private practitioners have to keep a lot of records. Your accounts, your client notes, your appointments, records of your CPD; there’s a lot to remember. It’s important to have a good record-keeping system – one that you actually use.

You’ve probably heard all the arguments about the best methods of record-keeping and managing your business in general…

“A traditional, paper-based system is by far the best; computers just complicate things”


“I use spreadsheets – they’re simple and they get the job done”


“You’ve got to have practice management software – I couldn’t live without mine”


Every therapy business is different. There’s no ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ way to do things. We use practice management software, because it works for us, but we understand that it won’t work for everyone.

To help you decide which system is right for you, we’ve uploaded a comparison document onto the Private Practice Hub. We hope you find it useful.

Don’t forget – we want to hear from you! Let us know what system you use to manage your business, and why it works for you, below.
