Q: We are four GPs who went into partnership in 2006. The senior partner offered us a written agreement which is basically the same as the BMA template. Although this covers the essentials, it does not mention areas that are now the subject of dispute with the senior partner. The agreement has also not been updated to reflect verbally agreed changes. The senior partner is also acting as if she is in charge, taking more holiday and working fewer hours than agreed verbally.
What are our options? We would be willing to sign an up-to-date partnership deed but the senior partner is resisting. We feel she is in breach of the contract she has with us.
