GP Partners – The Way They Work

In this post Dr Neil Paul asks for some feedback from GP Partners.

“I’m interested in feedback from colleagues who are GP Partners. Traditionally GP Partners get paid a session per half day worked, so 4 days = 8 sessions.

A lot of argument can result inside a practice trying to make sure everyone is working the same and pulling their fair share. Do any practices out there run a different system, for example – different partners do different duties and perhaps agree to have different workloads and are happy to take a perhaps lower share? e.g. work 4 days and do 20 min appt and perhaps get 0.5 or 0.6 shares per session. Does anyone have an other ways of doing it, id be inmterested to know?
