The Medics' Money Business for GPs course

The Medics' Money Business for GPs course teaches GPs what they need to know to make better business and financial decisions

GPs are taught plenty of clinical medicine. But GPs are taught almost nothing about the business and financial skills needed to be a GP.

This lack of financial education means GPs can make costly financial mistakes.

Hi there. I’m Dr Tommy Perkins, an experienced GP Partner and I’m Dr Ed Cantelo a GP AND a Chartered accountant and Chartered Tax adviser.

As GPs ourselves, we know how little you get taught about the business and finances of GP. Which is why we built this course.

If you want to know:
  • How GP partnerships are funded and why this matters?
  • How to reduce the cost of RCGP exam fees by up to 40% saving you a potential £2,454?
  • Whether your NHS Pension is a good deal and the essential annual checks your pension needs
  • Whats the difference between GMS, LES and QOF income?
  • Why the senior partner is always naging you to record the smoking status of patients and take their blood pressure?
  • What the CQC does?
then this course is for you. 

We will teach you the essential financial and business aspects of being a GP.

The Medics’ Money Business for GPs course will set you up for a happy, profitable and rewarding career as a GP.
