Primary Care Law Advice for GPs

GP surgery development and GP practice funding advice

The most important individual transaction which many GP practices undertake is the acquisition and development of new surgery premises, or the refurbishment or expansion of their existing site. Our experienced team of GP & primary care lawyers provides specialist legal advice and support to GP practices throughout the process.

For specialist advice on GP surgery development or funding, please contact Ben Willis on 0117 314 5394.

Quick Enquiry

GP surgery development lawyers

We have dealt with over 95 GP surgery developments in recent years. These have involved situations where the partners themselves have owned surgeries, and also where they have employed “design and build” developers, coupled with lease-backs to the partners.

We have constructed suitable schemes to cover situations where more than one GP practice occupies the same site, and we are particularly experienced in the arrangements between GP practices and related occupiers such as pharmacies, dentists and other ancillary users.

Transfer of GP partnership property arrangements

Of particular importance is the arrangements which each GP partnership makes in regard to the transfer of property interests on the retirement of existing partners or the introduction of new partners. The arrangements that we have made in this respect have achieved widespread authority and credibility within the GP profession.

GP surgery funding

We have been appointed to the specialist lending panels of several major banks and have a great deal of experience of the security and funding requirements inherent in GP surgery development schemes.

We are also very familiar with the operation of the Schemes for reimbursement of ‘Borrowing Costs’ (previously known as Cost Rent) and notional rent and the NHS (Premises Costs) Directions.

For GP surgery development and funding advice from experienced lawyers, please contact Ben Willis on 0117 314 5394.

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!
