Partners faced with £800,000 potential liability following practice closure


Muhammad Rahim | GP registrar05 Aug 2016 12:29pm Because presumably if they are leasing it, the site was a third party development, where the value is substantially linked to it being medical premises. This might be an option as a last resort, but landlords don't really like to move to that approach if they've had NHS income. The cost of conversion would also be huge. What has just really struck me from reading the article again is that this practice was on an 'at risk' list - ie we knew it was a problem, and we did sweet fanny adams to prevent this. Draw your own conclusions, but if you don't fit the model, expect to be left out to dry. Has the GP considered opening a private practice in the premises?
