Winter 2010/11 AISMA Doctor Newsline published

The Winter 2010/11 issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the publication of the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants, is published today with a line-up of top writers providing some essential financial and management information for general practice. Kathie Applebee, primary care organisation psychologist, kicks off with some timely advice on preparations for GP-led commissioning and compulsory registration with the Care Quality Commission as practices deal with the burdens of increased financial pressures. Solicitor Andrew Lockhart-Mirams has some words of warning for GPs with provider companies on handling conflicts of interest under the new regime of GP-led commissioning

Bob Senior, AISMA Chairman, says: “Our editor Robin Stride has pulled together a cracking issue with plenty of practical advice for doctors and practice managers who are facing massive challenges over the next 12 months. We know that tax and pension issues continue to be a major concern for GPs so the articles by AISMA accountants Tony Brand and Andrew Goddard should be particularly welcomed.”

AISMA Doctor Newsline is available exclusively to clients of AISMA accountants.
