Expertise now on hand for medical professionals as niche medical accountancy firm opens for business

Newcastle-based Blackett Walker Independent Financial Advisers has launched new sister company BW Medical Accountants Ltd. With over twenty years experience in wealth management, the financial firm, which manages a client portfolio worth over £150million and regarded as a national specialist in NHS pensions, has launched the niche accountancy practice designed purely for medical professionals across the UK.

Two of the region's leading medical accountants and tax experts are the driving force behind the new enterprise, having previously worked together for over 13 years in the accountancy profession. As Head of Medical Services, Keith Taylor will lead BW Medical Accountants, backed by over 32 years experience in the financial industry, latterly delivering accountancy services to over 145 GP practices and healthcare professionals across the UK.

Keith said: "The company brings with it highly experienced specialist knowledge of the healthcare sector at all levels, and through the very close working relationship with NHS pension specialist Kevin Walker and his team at Blackett Walker Independent Financial Advisers, we are able to work with medical professionals from qualification throughout their working career through to retirement."

Peter Waller brings over 35 years in the accountancy profession to his role as Head of Tax at the new company. He said: "I believe it is the strength of the team as a whole that is one of our biggest assets, as we have known and worked with each other for many years, some as long as 20 years. We chose to work together as we share the same values and focus on delivering an exceptional service. We have the knowledge to provide a full service focused solely on the needs of the healthcare sector."

Suzanne Tait, Chartered Management Accountant will support Keith with the delivery of the accountancy services. She said: "Medical professionals have very specific requirements, so our services are not simply about compliance but rather the strategic advice we can provide. Through the close working relationship with our sister company and their expertise in NHS pensions, our accountancy and tax clients will be able to benefit from a holistic approach to their finances. It's a fantastic opportunity for the company to deliver an unparalleled service to our clients."

  • 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.

  • 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.
