Central to the services we provide to GPs is the preparation of a GP partnership agreement to suit the individual needs of each practice.
Because of the frequent changes to which the GP & primary care sector is subject, within a few years a partnership agreement can go out of date and will need to be updated. We offer specialised know-how on the appropriate wording, as well as advice on the implications for the partners.
A new GP partnership deed (or at least a deed of adherence) should always be entered into before a partner joins, even on a probationary period. To wait for the end of probation before signing the new partnership deed is very risky. Many new intending partners seek advice from us on the existing GP partnership agreement of the practice which they are looking to join.
Because of our reputation, we are often approached in order to try and resolve GP partnership disputes, acting for individual partners or on behalf of the GP partnership generally.
As a firm, we are well known for offering experienced mediation services and we believe that where there are difficulties in partnerships it is of critical importance to find non-confrontational resolutions to those problems. If, despite such efforts, litigation cannot be avoided, we conduct proceedings through the High Court including dissolutions or contentious actions between GP partners.
I would like to say we have been delighted with the service you have offered. You have always been very approachable, both by email and phone, with prompt replies that are written in plain English that even a doctor can understand!
