The Buying Group
The Buying Group aims to save practices money by negotiation discounts on goods and services which practices regularly use.
Interest on Late Payments
GPC Internal legal advice was requested on whether practices can charge interest on late payment from the Area Team and sue through the small claims court (assuming it has not elected to become an NHS body) for cases of non-payment. We have been advised that this course of action is open to practices and ‘The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998’ should apply too (as the GMS Contract doesn’t appear to have contracted out of this). This allows for interest at the rate of 8% above base rate, plus a fixed sum and reasonable costs of recovering the debt.
