BW Medical Accountants grow Newcastle team
As a medical services accountant at BW Medical Accountants, Ann is responsible for managing the clients financial accounts as well as providing strategic advice. Ann started her career managing the finances for her husbands retail chemist business. After roles at accountancy practices John Bell & Co, Robson Laidler and RMT, where she gained experience and developed her expertise in the industry, Ann joined BW Medical Accountants, the Norths first and only niche practice that solely focuses on the healthcare sector. Ann said: It is a pleasure to be part of an excellent team of people at BW Medical Accountants, who work well together and have extensive knowledge and experience in medical finance. Healthcare is a very diverse area and GPs and dentists are unique in the sense that they are responsible for managing a business as well as the health of their patients, and to balance the two is a continually changing, challenging environment. BW Medical Accountants brings together specialist experienced staff in order to provide high quality accountancy and tax services alongside sound financial management advice to enable our healthcare clients to run efficient, effective businesses. New to the team is Tina Milligan from Whitley Bay, a highly experienced accountant and qualified maths teacher with a proven track record in the preparation of accounts for medical professionals. Her new role as medical services accountant will see her manage the preparation of medical accounts for clients and NHS pension forecasting as well as advising and supporting clients on all aspects of their accounting systems. After working as an accounts assistant at South Birmingham Health Authority and management accountant at Newcastle United Football Club, Tina moved to RMT as a medical accountant, where she was responsible for the preparation of partnership accounts for GP surgeries and the production of final accounts including personal expenses, private income and pension forecasts. Tina said: Working in the accountancy profession allows me to indulge my passion for problem solving. I enjoy working with healthcare professionals as I feel that I am caring for the carers and by working with like-minded colleagues in an open environment where ideas can be shared, I believe we have something truly unique to offer our clients. Rachel Ormston has also joined the team as a medical services accountant. Rachel, from Walbottle in Newcastle, has worked in the accountancy sector for five years, gaining experience in medical accounts for GPs and the dental industry. Following a role as an accounts trainee at Robson Laidler in Newcastle, Rachel took up a post as a medical accountant at RMT, where she further developed her knowledge of financial accounting systems for medical practices, including partnerships and individuals. Her new role takes in the full preparation of financial accounts for both medical professionals and GP practices and she is passionate about her work and the industry. BW Medical Accountants is a unique accountancy practice offering specialist knowledge in all areas of medical finance, whether you are a dental associate, hospital consultant or a GP practice. By helping to provide an outstanding service to clients and assisting them with any queries they may have, we can provide a service that no one else can offer. I enjoy working within the healthcare sector, as it is a unique field to work in. “I like to be there not only to prepare the accounts but also help or advise clients in any way I can and use my skills to provide a level of service that professionals in the healthcare profession truly understand and value.” Keith Taylor, Head of Medical Services, BW Medical Accountants, said: We are delighted to welcome Ann, Tina and Rachel to the team. Their financial and management experiences in the medical sector will add to the considerable expertise already on offer to the medical professions. We estimate that less than 50 per cent of GP practices are currently supported by specialist medical accountants, so its our aim to help as many medical professionals as possible manage their finances and navigate the challenges facing the sector.
