My company, Howbeck Healthcare Limited, is developing a financial benchmarking tool and report for GP practices and are looking for more volunteer practices to test it out on, who will get it free. We sign confidentiality agreements with you and send a list of questions about your practice (that we are developing), you securely send us a copy of your accounts and we will produce a report and feedback on how you are doing compared to other practices. To include: where there may be opportunities for income generation, cost reduction and how your profits and costs compare to others. We have done this for over 15 practices so far and for some, it can be very interesting and informative. To be fair some don’t learn a lot as they are doing well already. We have found that even practices with specialist medical accountants benefit though practices who use non-specialists tend to benefit more. Get in touch if interested.
