Video: How to deal with a difficult GP partner - and the green socks clause

As GP partnerships develop to meet new challenges, solicitor Lynne Abbess explains how to tackle a partner who no longer fits the team.

Disputes among GP partners are expected to become more common as practices struggle to succeed in the increasingly competitive environment for primary care providers.

In this exclusive video interview, leading healthcare lawyer Ms Abbess discusses the steps that GPs can take to protect their practice when relations deteriorate between partners.

Please note: When Ms Abbess talks in the video about expulsion on grounds of sickness being clear cut, this is only when the reason for the sickness is not on account of an illness protected by the Equality Act 2012.

The interview covers the following topics:

  • How to expel a difficult partner.
  • What your partnership deed should include on expulsion.
  • The green socks clause and how to use it.

Lynne Abbess is head of the practitioner team at specialist healthcare solicitors Hempsons, and our resident legal expert at Medeconomics.
