AISMA – Summer Doctor Newsline

Please click here to access the Summer 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 in the practice – and how to prevent it – is this issue’s lead article by Ian Crompton, head of healthcare banking services at Lloyds Bank. With some essential tips for you and your staff on how to avoid cyber fraud, this is a must-read feature.

AISMA vice chairman Deborah Wood offers her own analysis of the General Practice Forward View document published earlier this year. Her message is loud and clear: practices need to act now to take advantage of the policy changes outlined.

This issue’s Opinion piece is from AISMA committee member Chris Howe, who offers some insights into what you should be aiming to achieve in your annual accounts meeting.

Practice manager and consultant Fiona Dalziel has some advice on tackling GP recruitment in your practice and the issue ends with a piece from The Surgery Network’s Tracey Hole on how to maximise your income for personally administered items.

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.
