Andrew Pow, a Director at Hall Liddy, has been appointed to the executive committee of the trade body AISMA (Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants).
His role will include liaising with government and leading lobbying on behalf of AISMA, the national network of accountancy firms specialising in the healthcare sector.
Andrew, who has over 20 years’ experience in medical accounting, specialises in appraising the performance of GP practices and advising on changing structures. His role in campaigning to highlight the problems facing small rural isolated GP practices last year has led to a government review of the way funds are allocated.
Andrew said: “Funding is central to the future of the NHS and, as medical accountants, we are well placed to contribute to the debate. I was delighted that my previous efforts in lobbying on behalf of small rural practices has led to a government review and we are currently awaiting the outcome. I look forward to taking up the role with AISMA and speaking up on future issues, as a spokesman for the organisation.”
Bob Senior, AISMA Chairman and head of healthcare at RSM UK, said: “Andrew brings considerable knowledge and expertise to the AISMA committee and his contribution to the work of the Association will be highly valued.”
