GP partnership disputes: key considerations

Disputes between partners are often complicated, time-consuming, costly and stressful for the individuals involved. Even at the best of times, relationships between partners can be intense and pressurised. Add a global pandemic and spiralling pressures on general practice and it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a rise in disputes within GP partnerships.

In this article, we set out our approach to managing a dispute – a robust Partnership Agreement is the key but when you find that is not in place or it doesn’t provide a clear solution, we explain what you need to consider going forwards.
