AISMA Doctors Newsline Autumn 19

I am pleased to introduce you to the Autumn 2019 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 opens with practice management expert Fiona Dalziel explaining how practices with a good CQC quality status need to keep focused to maintain the quality they have worked so hard to achieve. She has some useful tips for staying on top.

AISMA board member Sue Beaton, who takes the pen for this issue’s Opinion column, writes that although a sweetener may be on the horizon for GPs hit with hefty pension savings tax charges, the effects will not be felt for some time.

With recent high profile fraud cases hitting the headlines, there are recommendations from AISMA for protecting against fraudsters – both outside and inside the practice.

Abi Newbury, AISMA’s Agony Accountant, tackles some common partnership concerns, answering questions on paying out retiring partners, how new partners can ‘buy in’ when they join the practice and the need for the all-important practice agreement.

Finally, employment law specialist Julia Gray has some advice to help practices overcome the big challenges that can arise when sharing staff across Primary Care Networks.

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.
