There has been a clear trend in primary care over many years for GP practices, dentists and pharmacists to increase in size and the pace of change has increased recently. This is reflective of the increased burden of regulation, the opportunities for economies of scale, and a widespread belief that larger practices deliver better clinical outcomes.
We have successfully assisted in the acquisition or merger of numerous dental practices, and have tried and tested approaches for most primary care business combinations.
Recent work includes:
- Business due diligence
- Business acquisition agreements, including warranties & indemnities
- Partnership Agreements
