Partnerships remain the most prominent business model in the healthcare sector and we offer a cost-effective and streamlined drafting service to document your working relationship with your partners and reduce risk.

From covering the possibility of 24 hour retirement, to documenting locum arrangements, you can be sure we’ll understand your requirements and provide the necessary support and advice to navigate you through this sometimes tricky process.

We offer a fixed-fee service for preparing the first draft of your partnership agreements, so you can rest assured that you are getting the best possible support without the fear of spiralling costs. See the ‘fees guide’ drop down for more information about our costs. Don’t forget – BMA members benefit from discounted rates across our services.

Our service is fine-tuned to capture the specific intricacies and requirements of your partnership, so we can quickly draw up and complete a document that is practical, sector-specific and bespoke.

As a long-standing service, which our lawyers used to run within the British Medical Association, we have helped a huge number of partnerships deal with the difficult task of formalising their working relationship.


When should you review your partnership agreement?

There are certain events in a partnership’s lifetime that should trigger a review of the agreement. These include new and retiring partners, along with disputes, changes in legislation. Find out more >
