In 2007 I became a partner at a practice that had previously been single-handed. I did not sign a partnership deed.
A few months later, my partner was suspended by the PCT. It then asked me to run the practice and paid a weekly locum allowance to the practice on top of the GMS funding.
The practice operated with the help of various locums. My partner remained suspended for several months, then resigned. In the absence of a partnership deed, the accountant prepared accounts and divided the profits equally between us.
Can you advise whether my ex-partner is entitled to seniority pay or does it belong to the practice? We did not inform the PCT in writing about how seniority payment should be distributed at the time of forming the partnership. Likewise should the locum allowance be divided?
