    Abstract

    A universal claim form was designed to replace 12 different forms currently in use by general practitioners in the National Health Service to claim payment for items of service. This form was evaluated over a period of three months in a group practice. It was acceptable to doctors, staff, and the staff of the family practitioner committee. Considerably more claims were made during the trial period than during the same period the previous year.
