GP advisers' workload on the up

The new treatment of GPs' superannuation contributions has led to increased accounting complexity and higher workloads for accountants

Advisers to GPs have been forced to increase their workload over the past 12
months to manage new NHS accounting methods, but have not increased their fees,
a new survey is set to reveal.

The new treatment of GPs’ superannuation contributions, which came into
effect from April 2004 as part of new contracts for medical practitioners, has
led to increased accounting complexity and higher workloads for accountants,
according to Mike Gilbert, medical clients partner at RMT and compiler of the
annual survey from the Association of Independent Specialist Medical
Accountants.

However the next survey, to be released on 12 May, will reveal that fees have
remained static.

‘Fees haven’t gone up but calculating [GPs’] super-annualised income was
complex last year,’ said Gilbert.

He also refuted reports that the impending AISMA survey would reveal many GPs
were earning on average £250,000.
