RMT expand medical and healthcare division

August 2, 2013

The North East’s leading specialist medical and healthcare accountants RMT is to expand the services it provides and grow the expert team that delivers them.

RMT Accountants & Business Advisors is already nationally acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading specialist medical and healthcare accountancy practices, and works with many of the medical professionals both across the north east and beyond, including over a third of all the GP practices in the region.

And as well as enhancing its existing offering to healthcare professionals, the Gosforth-based firm is also aiming to further develop its services to other areas of healthcare, including opticians, dentists, pharmacy and the care home sector, as well as animal healthcare and veterinary practices.

Led by director Maxine Pott, RMT Medical & Healthcare are founder members of the UK’s Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA), and work with medical professionals of every kind, including GPs, hospital doctors, locums and consultants.

Three senior practitioners have been recruited to join the existing 13-strong medical and healthcare team as part of the expansion.

Sector specialist Sharon Kelly has joined as a Health Group manager from a practice in Scotland, experienced medical accountant Phil Harnby has returning to RMT in a similar role and Iain Dorkin has been recruited as a Healthcare Tax Senior.

Senior tax manager Richard Humphreys has also moved across from RMT’s specialist tax division to lead the Healthcare tax team, and will use his extensive healthcare sector knowledge to provide the wider range of commercial support that GP practices and medical professionals now need in response to the sector’s ongoing changes.

Further appointments are planned in the coming months, which will take the RMT healthcare team up to at least 20 by the end of 2013.

Maxine Pott says: “The medical sector has been a key area of our business for many years. We have a well established and extremely strong team in place, and the expertise we offer is recognised by the profession as being amongst the very best available anywhere in the UK.

“The way in which medical sector finances have developed in recent years, especially within primary care, has put a greater emphasis on proactive, strategic financial advice and business support, and the additional resources we are bringing in and dedicating to our medical and healthcare division reflect the increasingly complex financial responsibilities facing all medical professionals.

“Using the expertise that we’ve developed in the medical division as a way to develop the business in other healthcare sectors is a natural extension of what we do, and our aim is to use the additional resources we’ve added to the practice to do this organically while still retaining a total focus on the needs of our existing medical clients.”
