AISMA – Autumn Doctor Newsline

Please click here to access the Autumn 2016 edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the newsletter for GPs and practice managers published by our membership organisation, the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants.

Fraud leads the line-up again in this issue, with a feature highlighting some of the highlights from AISMA’s new guide to preventing fraud in medical practices. Insider fraud is a key theme with guidance given on how to rate your own practice’s financial controls and a ‘real life’ example of how one practice fell victim to insider fraud.

If profits are under pressure at your practice, then practice management consultant Fiona Dalziel has some tips on looking after the pennies to protect the pounds.

AISMA Vice Chairman Deborah Wood offers a round-up of some of the key issues for GP practices that have been in the news over the last few months, from mergers and MCPs through to retirement planning.

Gaynor McIntyre, management consultant, offers her thoughts on how GPs can re-capture the love of their profession and feel in control of their practices again.

Finally, specialist solicitors Alison Oliver and Fiona Campbell explore the risks of email monitoring in the workplace in the light of recent case law.

I hope you find this edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline a helpful and practical source of information. If you would like to discuss any of the issues highlighted in the newsletter we would be pleased to talk to you.
