More GP Partners Looking to Remove Burden of Premises Ownership


Following the continuing trend of GPs becoming less inclined to bear the burden of premises ownership, Assura have completed a substantial number of property acquisitions since the financial year end on 31 March 2016.

Dr Tim Watkins of Horncastle Medical Centre said;

“Assura have been a pleasure to work with and I am grateful for your help and assistance in negotiations with the NHS in relation to the sale and leaseback and in negotiating leases terms to suit our particular circumstances. Completion of the sale in the current climate has helped to protect the future of the practice by taking away the issue of property ownership from future partners. We look forward to a long lasting partnership with Assura as our landlord.”
