The healthcare team at Sydney Mitchell has wide ranging experience of the legal issues facing GP practices. Typically these issues occur in two areas:

Business issues

The Sydney Mitchell healthcare team is expert in dealing with the partnership issues which arise in relation to GP practices. These include:

  • Preparing new partnership agreements
  • Reviewing and updating current agreements
  • Dealing with admissions and expulsions
  • Advising on non-GP partners
  • Employment Law
  • Supplier contracts

In addition, specialist advice can be given in relation to:

  • GMS / PMS and derivative contracts
  • GP consortia
  • Practice mergers and demergers
  • Practice acquisitions

Property issues

Healthcare premises are often an inhibition to the flexibility of GP practices. Many such premises are held in a traditional manner which has no relevance to the business needs of the modern practice.

The healthcare team at Sydney Mitchell is happy to advise on all such issues and ensure that your property arrangements are free of the complexity generated by former and sometimes deceased partners being named on the title.

Development of new Health Centres

Our healthcare team is very experienced in dealing with new premises development whether lead by the GP practice, by a developer or NHS funded.

These are complex and high value transactions which can prejudice  the future financial integrity of the practice if not expertly handled. This is particularly true when the development is to be shared with other occupiers.

Please contact the healthcare team at Sydney Mitchell for our assistance on any of these issues.
