BW Medical Accountants continues to raise the bar

A leading medical specialist accountancy firm has recruited an experienced senior chartered accountant and manager Andrew Robson as part of its ambitious long term growth plans which have seen it achieve a client portfolio of 90 GP practices across the UK.

 

Under the expert stewardship of chartered accountant Keith Taylor, and tax specialist Peter Waller, BW Medical Accountants has gone from a standing start in July 2013 to now advising over 900 doctors, consultants, practice managers, dentists, retired practitioners and personal tax clients making it one of the biggest firms of its kind in the region.

 

Whitley Bay based Andrew Robson, 60, who joins this month (January 2016) from Robson Laidler, another North East firm with recognised healthcare sector expertise, has many years of general accountancy and specialist medical accountancy experience working with hundreds of individuals and companies across all sectors, but in particular healthcare.

 

The role that Andrew is stepping into will involve hands on account management of the extensive BW Medical client base.

 

Andrew, who celebrates his Ruby wedding anniversary this year and has two grown up daughters and five grandchildren, said: “I felt I really wanted to challenge myself, taking on a new role at this stage in my career is certainly a fantastic way to do that.

 

“I’ve been aware of BW Medical Accountants since its launch in 2013 and Keith Taylor and Peter Waller, for a lot longer than that, as leading lights in accountancy and in the medical healthcare sector.

 

“Keith and the team at BW Medical have been on a journey of dynamic growth and I am looking forward to supporting them in their bid to grow the business further and to continue delivering first class financial advice to their client base.

 

“I worked as a partner, associate and senior manager for the same firm for 28 years working closely with GP and dental practices and it is that experience that I am looking forward to bringing to the role.”

 

With Andrew Robson’s appointment there is now a team of 17 within BW Medical which has grown from the initial complement of two.

 

Keith Taylor, managing director at BW Medical, said: “There are a great many changes occurring in the healthcare sector and on top of this it is a highly complex area, so we always ensure our recruitment policy reflects this.

 

“Andrew’s appointment demonstrates our continued commitment to recruiting the very best medical specialists out there.

 

“We have great strength in depth and Andrew’s appointment as a senior chartered accountant, complete with his excellent account management skillset, only enhances this.

 

“2015 flew by as we continued to grow right across the UK bringing on practices from Essex, Middlesex, Cheshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Humberside as well as across the North East and Cumbria and in 2016 Andrew’s appointment will allow us to push on further.

 

“We have also been active in raising awareness of the issues facing general practice in this country. As part of this BW Medical, Scott McKenzie Associates and Ward Hadaway were heavily involved in a National Conference on GP Federations in Manchester with headline speaker Dr James Kingsland OBE, a leading authority in General Practice, bringing GPs, NHS Trusts and private sector providers together to help set healthcare agenda in 2016.”

  • We had no hesitation in moving to BW Medical Accountants.  For any business your accountant is integral, and for us one of the most important factors to this relationship is to have a personal and trusting approach, which BW have undoubtedly achieved. 

    The service we receive and the interest they show in our practice assures us that they have a genuine interest in us and commitment to us.  More importantly they are always helpful and polite to answer even the dumbest of questions!  They give us confidence and reassurance knowing that they are always very up-to-date with all the numerous changes within general practice and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other practices seeking a professional and personal accountancy service.

  • We moved to BW Medical Accountants in 2013 and we are delighted that we have.  Having been in the same business for over 20 years it is important to have a relationship with the accountancy team but most importantly you need to have trust.  We made the decision to move our business to BW Medical Accountants and having worked with the Team especially Tina we are very satisfied.  Tina going through the accounts brought to our attention many things that I was not aware of in the past.  The first years' experience can only be described as excellent.

    Customer service is first and foremost with BW and this shines through as each and every one of them are approachable, helpful and most importantly understand and know the business.  General practice is complex and is going to get more complex in the coming years.  We need Accountants who truly understand our business. We as a practice and as individuals would certainly recommend BW Medical Accountants.
