It is amazing how many patients a certain MHM client sees each clinic.
In the “pre Covid-19 days” he saw between 12 and 15 each clinic.
Now he is seeing between 15 and 20.
Obviously there is a back log to clear but the interesting point is the numbers have not gone down.
Well, this client does absolutely nothing other than see patients.
However, that does not mean he never works ON his practice. It means he has others work ON his practice whilst he works in it. In other words, he does what he is good at: seeing patients.
He never spends time trying to organise a clinic. Nor does he get involved in the value of his invoices. Only very occasionally will he call and ask how much a procedure is worth.
Instead, he leaves all that to others.
When he set up his practice in 2017, he realised others were better at running his practice than he.
More importantly, he understood he only gets two chances to make any money in a private practice.
1: when a patient is in an outpatient clinic
2: when the patient is in theatre.
He does not spend any of his time doing anything which does not involve either of the above.
And that is probably why he has a very successful private practice.
