July and August represent the silly season for me with people on holiday.
Consider, the practice secretary on leave for the last two weeks of July. Consequently, when she is back, I will invoice for the last two weeks of that month.
In other words, one clinic each week.
Yet she only sent me one clinic list for the last week in July.
In the second clinic a particular patient’s follow up appointment needs an invoice.
Standard practice in such a case is to look back at the initial consultation.
The initial consultation was not invoiced for the clinic list for that day hadn’t been supplied.
And the total clinic was worth £3,450.
And this is why, not raising an invoice is 100% guaranteed to lead to non-payment.
