Practice ownership - getting started

From time to time we run free webinars to demystify getting started in general practice ownership by looking at current trend, ownership rewards and why clinician ownership is important to the future of general practice.

The webinar features a panel of four GP owners at various stages of their clinical and ownership careers who will share their experiences and answer questions from attendees. Facilitation by ProCare CFO Tony Wai and Commercial Manager Rachel McLeay.

If you’ve ever contemplated buying a practice, this webinar will offer insights and practical advice.
