Autumn 2012 AISMA Doctor Newsline published

The latest issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the newsletter for GPs and practice managers published by the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants has been published today.

With many GPs considering their retirement options, this issue leads with succession planning advice from AISMA committee member Luke Bennett to help practices ensure a smooth transition when GP partners change.

AISMA’s Northern Ireland committee representative, Seamus Dawson, reflects on funding issues in the light of the major consultation announced by the Royal College of General Practitioners on the future of general practice across the UK.

Alison Oliver, a solicitor specialising in GP partnership and contractual matters has answers to the legal questions most commonly asked by GPs, while organisational trouble-shooter Dr Chris Hewitt offers advice to practices on how to run effective meetings.

Finally, management guru Kathie Applebee explains where GPs and practice managers can find specialist advice without paying expensive consultancy fees on areas such as human resources, health and safety and CQC registration.

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

Doctors wishing to contact their local AISMA accountant can find details on the find an accountant page of this website.
