Testimonials

Castle Donington SurgeryDerby

The team at Rowleys have considerable NHS experience, built up over many years.

When the Castle Donington Surgery at Derby wanted to change from their accountants to a more professional firm.

Dr Helen Godridge, said:

I would just like to say that after 23 years of accountant meeting Claire Farr’s was the most helpful and understandable I have ever had! The service to our practice to date from the team has been faultless.

Many thanks and congratulations on employing a great team!

Red Roofs SurgeryWarwickshire

The team at Rowleys have considerable NHS experience, built up over many years.

When the Red Roofs Practice at Nuneaton, Warwickshire wanted to change from their South coast based accountants to a more local firm, they looked at a number of accountants and chose Rowleys.

Dr Michael Burnett, senior partner said:

We chose Rowleys as their team have a number of years experience in preparing GP Practice accounts, Partners’ Tax Returns and Pension forms and are fully aware of the changes taking place within General Practice.

Red Roofs is a large practice and undergoing a number of changes with partners retiring and new partners and salaried GPs being appointed. During that time the Rowleys team have provided invaluable advice and help particularly with regard to capital accounts and the smooth transition.

Having day to day experience of Practice finance has been profitable for us. We found their knowledge of GMS, Qof, Enhanced Services etc. and how it links together invaluable and they were able to advise us on how we can ensure that we get paid for all we do. They put simple to use systems in place that assist us with this and give us confidence.

Humberstone Medical CentreLeicester

GPs provide medical services to patients but should remember they are also running a business.

Dr Ian Jones, former senior partner, commented:

It has been invaluable to us to have an accountant who understands General Practice. This understanding does not come from sitting in a remote office but from working day by day in practices. Hence we have found that the expertise found at Rowleys, who not only prepare the annual accounts and advise on taxation, invaluable when working with us in unusual GP specific situations.

When we moved from our own building to new premises we needed help with lease and service charge negotiations with our Primary Care Trust. As specialist GP accountants fully up to speed with the lease plus arrangements, we were able to successfully challenge some of the charges that were originally included.

We needed advice on pension deductions when one of our GP registrars went on maternity leave. This kind of problem needs an accountant who understands the complexity of the NHS pension scheme. The expertise found at Rowleys guided us through this.

Hockley Farm Medical PracticeLeicester

We would recommend Rowleys reassuring level of expertise. The Rowleys team are very professional and approachable.

Professor Kamlesh Khunti, Dr Ahmed Nana and Dr Sam Seidu are partners at the Hockley Farm Medical Practice in Leicester.

Working in a busy inner city practice is extremely time consuming and it is reassuring to know that our accountants understand the demands put on us and work with us.

The team at Rowleys are very professional and demonstrate a high level of technical knowledge. With their dedicated medical sector we know that our financial affairs are in good hands,” says Professor Khunti.

Dr Ahmed Nana said that, “Being the partner responsible for the practice finances, I have a greater level of confidence in having Rowleys as our accountants. As well as having a high level of expertise, Rowleys also have day to day hands on experience and are able to step in and help when we were in between Practice Managers and they took over all aspects of our practice finances including payroll and claims.

Victoria Park Health CentreLeicester

Rowleys always respond promptly.

The Victoria Park Health Centre is not your average GP Practice. The majority of their patient list are students of Leicester University which brings unique challenges.

Samantha Rogers is the practice manager at the surgery and commented:

We are a unique practice, unlike most of the other GP Practices around us. I have always had a good relationship with the team at Rowleys and benefit from their expert advice. They understand the uniqueness of our Practice and this helps greatly. They are always willing to help where needed and respond quickly to any queries that we have.

As well as producing our end of year accounts and partners’ expense claims, pension certificates and tax returns, they provide detailed information on how we are performing. They point out areas where we can look to improve our income and profits. They can do this as they have built up considerable knowledge, gained from working within the NHS and also commercial organisations.

Hedges Medical CentreLeicester

Having good relationships is key, particularly when things get difficult. Rowleys play a key role in the running of the business.

Hedges Medical Practice was a PCT managed practice and all the GPs were employed by the PCT. The doctors wanted to take control and entered into negotiations with the PCT to take over the Practice.

Dr Sally Bailey, senior partner said:

At that time we knew that we could provide a better service to patients and become more profitable by taking over the running of the Practice. We needed help with looking at the financial implications of this move and also to negotiate a good deal with the PCT.

The help we had with understanding GMS finance was outstanding and I have no doubt that we would not have achieved the deal we did, without their input.

Rowleys are not just our professional advisers but real friends to the Practice and we know that we can rely on them.

We have had a few challenges with partners and key members being away sick for prolonged periods and throughout this time we have really valued the help of the Rowleys team. They went out of their way to help us and we know that they have our best interests at heart.
