Podcast: Why GP partnerships are still a good option

GP partner Dr Tommy Perkins and specialist medical accountant Andy Pow from Medics Money explain why being a partner is still a good career choice, how practices can cope with current financial challenges, and provide advice for those new to partnership.

Emma speaks to GP partner Dr Tommy Perkins and specialist medical accountant Andy Pow from Medics Money about GP partnerships and why they are still a good option despite all the doom and gloom out there.

In this conversation Tommy and Andy discuss how partnerships are changing with more non-GPs taking on the role, what to consider if you’re thinking about becoming a partner, how partnerships can ensure they are sustainable in the current financial climate, take a quick detour into pensions - with some useful advice for all GPs - and also discuss challenges around premises.

This episode is presented by GPonline editor Emma Bower. It was produced by Czarina Deen.
