AISMA Doctors Newsline Spring 2024

AISMA Doctor Newsline

I am pleased to introduce you to the Spring 2024 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.

AISMA Chairman Debbie Wood opens this issue with an expert commentary on the imposed 2024-25 GP contract for practices in England and the impact this could have on funding and workload. In her follow-up opinion piece, Debbie also sets out how AISMA accountants will be supporting their GP practice clients as they battle the imposition.

In her last article for AISMA Doctor Newsline, practice management expert Fiona Dalziel offers some guidance on managing holidays in the practice, to help everyone look forward to hassle-free annual breaks.

Banking expert Ian Crompton offers his analysis of recent changes in the Bank of England base rate and pointers to where it may go in the next few years, while AISMA board member Kieran Hancock gives a quick round-up on what last month’s Spring Budget means for GPs and their practices.

AISMA board member Andy Pow explains how AISMA has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to iron out administration issues with the UK’s pension organisations, while Abi Newbury, our resident ‘Ask AISMA’ columnist tackles the perennial topic of GP drawings.

Finally, legal expert Justin Cumberlege explains the new Provider Selection Regime for primary care services, the new framework replacing the Public Procurement Regulations for the award of health care services contracts in England.

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.
