In the newly competitive environment for healthcare providers, Lynne Abbess of Hempsons says GPs have a major headstart in the market because they already occupy specialist premises.
But practices need to keep ahead of the game by ensuring that their legal documentation is up to date and covers all eventualities.
GPs in premises owned by the PCT must also protect themselves from the changes to NHS estates management, when NHS Property Services takes over their leases in April 2013.
This exclusive video interview covers:
- How practices can protect their premises investment.
- Latest trends in rent reimbursement.
- The impact of NHS Property Services on PCT-owned premises.
- What happens if those GPs do not have a lease in place by 31 March 2013?
