AISMA Newsline – Autumn 2021

I am pleased to introduce you to the Autumn 2021 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.

The ‘McCloud’ remedy is under the spotlight in our lead article, with pensions expert Laura Bowler taking a detailed look at important changes affecting members of the NHS Pension Scheme, following a court ruling about age discrimination across public sector pensions.

In her opinion piece, AISMA board member Sue Beaton reflects on the huge effort practices have been making to meet patient demand over the past year and highlights the impact of some tax proposals proposed by the government.

Fiona Dalziel, practice management expert, explains why practices need to understand risk

management in terms of systems development and delivery, and Abi Newbury, AISMA’s resident columnist, answers some more topical questions from GPs.

Finally, specialist lawyers Ross Clark and Alison Oliver explore some of the key elements of the new Health and Care Bill published in the summer, and its implications for general practice.
