As GPs ourselves, we know how little you get taught about running your GP business, which is why we started this course.

The Medics’ Money GP Partnership course will set you up for a happy, profitable and rewarding career as a GP partner, whether you are a new partner or have been a partner for many years.

We will teach you the essential financial and business aspects of being a GP partner such as understanding the accounts and the key financial metrics that will increase profitability and deliver the best care to your patients. 

We will also cover the equally important topics of how to manage your workload, looking after your own health and wellbeing so you can be the best GP Partner you can be whilst also being the best mother, father, husband, wife, partner and doctor that you can be.

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

GP Partnership Course FAQs

As GPs ourselves, and with Tommy a GP Partner, we know how tight cash flow is so we allow you to secure your place with a £300 deposit.

The total cost of the course is £2,500 +VAT = £3,000 total.

👍The good news is there are several ways the NHS will cover the entire cost of our course (detailed below).

Option 1 for NHS funding

If you are a new partner and eligible for New to Partnership funding then our course is approved for this BUT if you are NOT eligible there are other NHS funding options ….

Option 2 for NHS funding – PCN funded

The 2023/24 PCN DES outlines a Leadership and management payment worth (worth £20,500 to a typical PCN with 30,000 patients) and many previous participants on our course have used this funding. 

Page 65 of the PCN DES Contract specification 2023-24 outlines more detail: https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/network-contract-des-contract-specification-for-2023-24-pcn-requirements-and-entitlements/

Option 3 for NHS funding

NHS England provides service development funding (sometimes called system development funding) to each ICB as additional funding to support PCNs. The funding is to support workforce programmes with many ICBs using it to fund training for partners, some of whom have used it for our course. 

Apply now and we will give you more details on funding. 

Option 4 – get your practice to pay and tax deductions could make it cost a lot less than you think!

💰If you are self funding the net cost of the course is just £1,188 for a 45% taxpayer and £848 for a 60% taxpayer. If you split the cost amongst a typical 5 partner practice it would cost each partner just £170 net to send one individual on our course. 

More details on New to Partnership funding

For those that became partners after April 2021 and before 31 March 2023 and subject to eligibility criteria, the New to Partnership funding can cover the entire cost of our course. Further details below. 

If you are using the New to Partnership funding here’s some specifics to be aware of

Some specifics to be aware of for those using the NHS New to GP Partnership funding:

To make use of the funding, you need to have become a partner prior to 31 March 2023 and have applied for the New to Partnership scheme by 30 June 2023.

The NHS will only approve training that commenced after you have become a partner.

Training must start within the first year of accepting a partnership role/receiving your welcome letter, unless otherwise agreed with NHSEI

Financial claims should be submitted via NHSEI within three months of purchasing the training. Full details for claiming reimbursement will be shared through the welcome letter sent to successful applicants.

You (or your practice) must pay the full amount, i.e. the NHS does not pay this for you. Instead, the NHS will reimburse you the full amount 1 year from the date you signed the partnership agreement or one year from the date of your New to Partnership funding letter.

We will issue an invoice for the remainder of the £3,000 shortly after you’ve paid your deposit. In order to qualify for reimbursement the NHS insists that you claim within three months of this invoice date. Once you have made payment, we will issue a receipt. Page 8 “business training” in this document gives further details. NHS Guidance.

No our course is for ALL partners. Many experienced partners join our course as they take on extra business responsibility eg they become the senior partner or the finance partner. Non GP partners are especially welcome and we have Practice Managers, Physios, Pharmacists, Paramedics and Nurse partners on our course.
