Tips to ease the profit squeeze are offered by several AISMA accountants to help practices looking for new ways to boost income and cut expenses.
With a GP recruitment crisis looming, AISMA Chairman Bob Senior explains why practices that fail to give time and attention to the issue of succession planning may be storing up trouble for the future.
Finally, specialist employment law solicitor Joanne White offers a quick guide to help GPs and their practice managers follow the correct procedures if they find themselves in the unhappy position of having to make staff redundant.
