AISMA Doctors Newsline Winter 23/24

I am pleased to introduce you to the Winter 2023/24 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.

Kicking off this issue is an overview by Kieran Hancock of the important financial changes affecting GPs in 2024 as a result of last year’s Spring Budget and Autumn Statement.

Jim Duggan offers his opinion on how the NHS should change to flourish and survive – including why the system needs to be encouraging GPs into partnership, not putting obstacles in their way.

Practice management expert Fiona Dalziel discusses the management of decision-making in general practice, while in her regular ‘Ask AISMA!’ column, Abi Newbury answers GPs’ dilemmas about repayments, accounts and tax.

Finally, specialist medical solicitors Ross Clark and Robert McCartney give some legal opinions on how to deal with disputes between partners, amid rising pressures of delivering services and challenging practice finances.

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.
