AISMA Doctors Newsline Autumn 2020

AISMA Doctor Newsline

I am pleased to bring you the Autumn 2020 edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the newsletter for GPs and practice managers published by our membership organisation, the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants. Please click here to view.

This issue kicks off with an autumn financial planner from AISMA Vice Chairman James Gransby, that highlights what you should be focusing on now and sets some priorities for the months ahead.

AISMA board member Sue Beaton writes how planning ahead over the next few months could help practices keep on track financially as the impacts of Covid-19 on cash flow and profitability start to be felt.

Practices all over the UK are having to grapple with patient expectations after the massive changes to the way in which primary care services are delivered as a result of the pandemic. Practice management consultant Fiona Dalziel shares her ideas on how practices can help fill the gap in patients’ understanding of the ‘new normal’.

In our regular AGONY AccoUNTant feature, Abi Newbury answers questions about PCN money and tax, drug reimbursements and a cash mis-match. Finally, specialist medical solicitor Alison Oliver runs through the main features of the NHS New to Partnership Scheme, summarising some key considerations for both the practice and a new partner joining.

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.
