Setting up a Private GP Practice

Setting up a Private GP Practice is NOT for everyone, but for those that have the gusto to do this, our Start-Up Private GP Practice Programme is ideal for them.

Whilst considerable changes occur in the world of GP’s, we believe there is an opportunity to set up and start a successful private GP service which patients desire.

However, it requires an important set of skills that not everyone has.

In our opinion, the people who go on to start up their own private GP practice, away from the restrictions of the NHS, display some of the following characteristics:

  • Clarity of vision
  • Focus and tenacity
  • Resilience even in the face of adversity
  • A great team worker knowing how to get the best out of others
  • Not afraid of hard work, but also knows their limitations

Our extensive experience in helping practitioners comes from starting up many private dental practices for ourselves (the private dental market is approximately 20 years ahead of the GP world in our opinion), but in recent times assisting GP’s startup successful private GP practices.

Setting up in Practice Boot Camp

Our annual popular Setting up in Practice Boot Camp, designed for dentists and doctors looking to set up or buy a practice, is great a starting point to look at the option of either setting up or buying a practice.
