As part of revalidation GPs will have to complete one multi-source feedback questionnaire sent to around 15 colleagues and one distributed to around 35 patients.
Wessex LMCs chief executive Dr Nigel Watson said that some private companies offered to collect and collate GPs' multi-source feedback for between £70 and £100.
However Wessex LMCs' multi-source feedback software costs £36 for LMC members to use.
Dr Watson said that despite it only being launched within the last few days, around 80 GPs had already registered to use the software.
He said: ‘When looking into the brave new world, you have got to make sure that as an LMC you are not only representative but you also offer your members something they need.’
Wessex LMCs' software allows GPs to upload 20 email addresses of colleagues they want to provide feedback. Once 15 or more colleagues have completed the questionnaire the LMC tool will review the feedback and send a report back to the GP.
Dr Watson said he was unaware of other LMCs offering a similar service, although he had been approached by a couple wanting to use Wessex’s software. ‘If other LMCs want to talk to us we might come to an agreement with them,’ he said.
