MHA Larking Gowen have been the Practice's Accountants for a considerable time. The partnership has benefited from a highly personalised level of service from Mr Andrew Burwood of MHA Larking Gowen with direct access for advice - a rarity today. He has an excellent team to support him who develop a clear understanding of our business and its idiosyncrasies. The responses are rapid helping the practice and its partners to navigate the increasingly difficult mine field of running a NHS GP Practice and a NHS Pharmacy. Accounts are well presented and delivered personally in a formal meeting to discuss performance and to target areas that may be improved along with metrics to allow comparison with other practices using anonymous data. There is excellent resources in the firm for other businesses. Probably not the cheapest accountants available but possibly the best.

Larking Gowen prepare our practice accounts and also those of our hybrid pharmacy. They are always efficient and thorough. They are always quick to respond to queries and also provided much needed support when we were without a financial manager for a few months. They provided invaluable support and advice for our new financial manager. They were most helpful and gave us sound advice when appointing a new partner
