AISMA responds to Dr Chaand Nagpaul’s speech at the 2017 LMC conference

James Gransby, executive board member of the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants, said: “Traditional GP practices are under threat from ‘last man standing’ syndrome because older partners are retiring and younger doctors are unwilling to take on the financial burden of partnership.” He continued: “To survive practices will need to adapt to working at scale, rather than as isolated units. The number of mergers and super partnerships being formed is a direct result of funding being directed towards these new scaled models, while traditional GP practices will continue to see their financial sustainability falter.”
