AISMA Doctor Newsline

I am pleased to introduce you to the Winter 2021/22 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.

Practice management expert Fiona Dalziel opens this issue with some timely advice on planning to survive. As practices work harder than ever to cope with the latest COVID crisis, this couldn’t come at a more opportune moment.

AISMA board member Luke Bennett shares his thoughts on fiscal drag and how this is likely to impact at a practice and personal level as inflation starts to rise over the coming months, while AISMA Vice Chairman James Gransby offers an expert commentary on how proposed changes to NHS Pension Scheme contributions are likely to affect members of the scheme.

Regular Ask AISMA! columnist Abi Newbury answers some topical questions on drawings for sick partners, how tax refunds should be dealt with, and what to look for in a new partner.

Finally, specialist medical solicitors Emma Summerfield and Vicky Rowlands give an overview of the claims process of the NHS Resolution Clinical Negligence Indemnity Scheme for General Practice, including the support doctors will get if they are named as defendants.

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.
