  • Busting the myths about collaborative arrangements for general practice

    23 January 2018

    General practices are working together, but once the purpose, vision and function of the collaboration are clear there are a number of routes to consider.

    Understanding all the options available is a crucial next step. Joint working agreement, merger, super-partnership, or develop a company – and do you really need to change at all? There are several forms a company could take including limited by guarantee or by shares. Similar options are also available in the form of a community interest company. More recently super-partnerships have developed and this form has some advantages. Depending on function you may not need a formal company or partnership arrangement.

    This workshop on 31 January in Manchester, 13 February in London and 7 March in Birmingham will help you work through the answers, with an experienced lawyer who has supported a number of practices to work together effectively ensuring the issues such as staff sharing and indemnity are covered.

    We will be adding two new e-learning courses to our portfolio soon: Grammar and Effective Writing and Data Protection. The grammar and effective writing course helps participants to discover the underlying rules and conventions of writing, consider the impact of their writing decisions and develop their own writing and editing skills. The data protection course has been revised and for 2017/18 including information on GDPR, the European legislation that all practices need to be aware of before it takes effect on 25 May.
