Albert Goodman announces a merger with Bristol-based specialist medical accountancy firm MW Medical.
10th August 2018 – Albert Goodman, has today announced a merger with specialist medical accountants, MW Medical, based in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.
The merged business will become part of the Albert Goodman group whilst retaining its own well-recognised trading name and will continue to operate out of its current premises on Westbury Hill. The merger enhances the range of specialist services Albert Goodman can offer the healthcare sector and gives the platform it requires to serve its growing client base. The entire MW Medical team of 9 employees all join Albert Goodman.
Richard Bugler, Managing Partner at Albert Goodman, says: “We have known MW Medical for some time, a firm that is recognised as a national expert in advising GP practices and consultants. They bring a great deal of experience to the table and together we are one of the largest groups of specialist healthcare sector accountants in the country. This breadth of experience will allow us to provide an unrivalled range of services to our clients in this specialised sector.
“This merger provides us with a great foothold into the Bristol marketplace, being well placed near Southmead Hospital and The Bristol Royal Infirmary and we are delighted to add the Westbury-on-Trym office to our existing locations across the South West. As a member of both the Association
of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA) and the National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers (NASDAL), we are well-equipped to serve the needs of the healthcare sector.”
Jim Duggan of MW Medical and a member of the national board of AISMA who joins Albert Goodman as a partner, adds: “We are all thrilled to merge with Albert Goodman, a distinguished and well respected regional accountancy firm. The financial environment for healthcare professionals has become exceptionally complicated in recent years and with the range of resources Albert Goodman can provide, we look forward to providing our current and future clients with everything they need to navigate these challenging times. Albert Goodman already has a substantial client base across the care sector and our merger will mean we will be acting for over
100 GP and dental practices and over 1000 individual GPs and consultants.
This move provides MW Medical clients with additional in-house experts to work alongside their existing relationships. It will be very much business as usual, but with the added benefit of being able to take advantage
of the complete range of services available from Albert Goodman.
