Developing a federated model of General Practice: Best Practice Conference

"In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.” Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

Many thanks again to everyone who took time to speak with us at the Best Practice Conference.  It was great to see so many people and to be involved with such a great event.

For those interested in forming a federation/provider company across General Practice, we have over 20 BLOG posts on the BW Medical Accountants website. All BLOGS have been written to provide further detail and insight as to why now might be the right time to federate, while also providing some useful hints and tips based upon our work nationally supporting the development of GP Federations / GP Provider Companies to deliver high quality patient outcomes with financially viable solutions. 

Our support package includes expert consultancy advice from Scott  McKenzie, specialist accountancy advice from Chartered Accountant Keith Taylor and specialist legal advice from Alison Oliver and her team at Ward Hadaway.  Our unique service offering, ensures you have the best legal, accountancy and consultancy advice under one umbrella and we have the proven track record to demonstrate we deliver value for our clients!

We have created some useful guides, including '7 Steps to forming a federation, we also have over 20 blog posts and you can access these via our website or by joining the private LinkedIn Group we host called 'GP Federations'

Specialist support
At BW Medical Accountants we have a highly successful track record in establishing new federations and companies, and draw upon best practice utilising a number of unique approaches (capital on the basis of a loan is one of those).

The combination of a process-led approach, combined with strong implementation, secures excellent outcomes and income for our client base. Furthermore, within our team we have expertise in initial company formation, developing business cases, negotiating contracts (we now have subcontracts being signed between FTs and the Federations we work with, which could be adapted for your local circumstances), writing bids and tenders, reducing expenses for member practices, increasing income and providing regular hands on management.

If required we are also more than happy to provide access to our current federation client base should anyone want to speak with them about our work.

In our delivery we draw upon our management capability to ensure a smooth implementation, by matching our skills to the needs of the provider company.  Additionally we are highly flexible and quick to respond to your needs, and can work to incredibly tight timescales to meet your deadlines. In Newcastle for instance we held the workshop on 3rd and 10th September and launched the company to the Practices on the 18th! (References are available)

  • Very smooth changeover to BW, with good communication at all times. Very efficient in the production of the accounts (as promised) and the Partners are delighted with the advice received to date.

  • BW Medical Accountants have a good working knowledge of General Practice and are keenly aware of the challenges Practices face within the changing environment of the NHS.  Benfield Park have been very impressed by the way BW Medical continue to deliver the range of services they provide from Accounts to Tax and NHS Pension advice. 

    We have found Practice consultation and engagement from BW Medical specifically helpful to shape the future of the Practice.

    Jonathan McCutcheon, Practice Manager

  • 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.

    Jackie Rotherham, Practice Manager
    The James Street Family Practice, Lincolnshire
  • 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.

    Gloria Middleton, Managing Partner
    Westbourne Medical Group, Sunderland
  • We changed to BW Medical Accountants during this financial year and I would say we have just had the most transparent and understandable end of year meeting and the best planning advice I have ever had in 16 years of practice.
