New Partnership Coaching and Mentoring

26 November 2019

At CAVGP we are committed to supporting doctors who are thinking of becoming partners, or who recently have become partners, in their new venture.

We can provide confidential help and guidance in becoming a new partner, answer any questions, and talk through any concerns you may have.

What’s Available?

We can offer face to face, telephone or e-mail advice with one of our experienced GPs. The areas of support will depend upon your needs. Examples include:

  • Is this the right practice for you?
  • Do the numbers add up – do you understand the accounts?
  • Buying in? Leases?
  • Is there an up-to-date partnership agreement and are you happy with it?
  • Workload – how much do you want to work? How are on-calls, house visits shared?
  • Non NHS work – how is this shared out and paid?

Who will be providing the Support?

Following completion of VTS Jon worked as a part time Partner in a 5,000 patient list practice in Port Talbot, working regular sessions in out of hours. After a two years he stopped OOH work and increased his partnership commitments to full time. After seven years he moved to a 15,000 patient list size partnership in North Cardiff. A year later he became a property owner in the partnership also. Jon is a registered GP trainer and acts as the honorary treasurer in the RCGP South East Wales Faculty.
