AISMA – Doctor Newsline

The Spring 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 is now available.


Leading this issue is a round-up of GMS contract changes from AISMA vice chairman Deborah Wood and you can read her expert commentary to assess the impact that these changes will have on your practice.

AISMA committee member Luke Bennett offers some tips on how to make the most of your annual meeting with your accountant, from preparing for the meeting in advance to ensuring any major plans for the practice are brought into the discussion.

Looking at the future of general practice, AISMA chair Bob Senior, offers his thoughts on how practices need to shape up for survival and James Gransby has some ideas on how to keep your practice profits from draining away.

Finally solicitors, Alison Oliver and Jonathan Flower, summarise the crucial role of the GP practice in safeguarding and promoting children’s and young people’s welfare.

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.
