Chambers, Information for Consultants...

Consultants are not alone in considering joining together to form groups. Other professionals have traditionally come together to form groups for several of reasons.

The main factors that have brought professional together and which are common to consultants are:

  • Economies of scale
  • Spread of workload
  • Spread of risk
  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • Third party perceptions

However, the many changes in the structure of the NHS and private practice have brought additional factors into consideration for consultants:

  • NHS consultants contract
  • Primary Care Trusts
  • Insurers
  • Other consultants forming groups

Consultants forming groups is nothing new. Anaesthetist, radiologist and pathologists traditionally come together as groups for private practice with physicians and surgeons sharing rooms.
