GPs and Doctors

GP’s and Doctors

A medical practice is not a ‘routine’ business. So the last thing you want is an accountant with a ‘business as usual’ approach. The specialist medical team at Darnells understands the unique challenges medical practices face and how practice finances are often interlinked with the personal financial goals of the partners.

We’re committed to delivering whatever support you need to achieve financial stability, prosperity and robust risk management. We offer unlimited phone or email support and evening meetings on demand, all within your fixed annual fee.

As well as GP practices we support dentists, opticians, pharmacies and care homes.

Here are some of the ways we help:

Cost Benchmarking

Using AISMA data we compare your cost per patient, line by line, against the best performing practices. We also advise you on how you can change your way of working or suppliers to match the most efficient practices.

Detailed Financial Reporting

If you’re a Darnells client you don’t need to spend ages trying work out what your accounts are telling you – we do it for you. Our detailed financial reports highlight trends, concerns (such as unusually high cost items) and potential risks. They are easy to follow and deliver a comprehensive financial picture to help you make better decisions.

Cashflow Planning

Payments usually take time to flow through the system while costs tend to hit you almost immediately. Cashflow is one of the most critical issues for modern medical practices. We have the tools and expertise to keep you in control.

Retirement Planning

We help partners plan the most financially and tax efficient route to retirement. We also help practices recalculate drawings and profit sharing budgets when changes take place during the financial year.

Because personal and practice finances are so interlinked we will draw on the expertise of our property, tax and pensions experts to help you make decisions based on all the facts you need – for yourself and for your practice.
