Spring issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline published

The Spring 2011 issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the publication of the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants, is published today with an essential mix of advice and commentary on the business of running a busy GP practice.

Leading with a round-up of tips from AISMA accountants from all around the country on how to ease the tax burden in the months ahead, AISMA Doctor Newsline also focuses on GP commissioning with articles from leading solicitor Andrew Lockhart-Mirams and Kathie Applebee, primary care organisation psychologist.

While Andrew Lockhart-Mirams analyses some of the problems currently being experienced by Consortia, Kathie Applebee explains how choice of consortium can affect practice income. Also looking at the changes ahead, chartered surveyor Chris Johnson has some advice on how GP premises can play a role in helping GPs to meet new demands and generate additional income.

Deborah Wood, AISMA Vice-Chairman, says: “The focus on commissioning in this issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline provides some valuable insight into how practices can get involved and plan for the significant changes looming in primary care.”

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