Should I worry about being trapped in a sinking practice?


When I requested this article was written, I was more interested in the answers to the following questions: 1) Can you shelter yourself from risk of closure financially? I don't think limited companies work in a GP partnership model? 2) Do any GPs that have been unfortunate enough to go through a closure mind letting people know roughly how much they lost through the closure (with a rough breakdown of how that was broken down ie staffing costs etc). I obviously appreciate that this would vary massively depending on staff numbers and contracts, premise ownership and dispensing status. Does anyone mind giving any advice on these matters?
