Specialist Healthcare Accountants in Scotland

Healthcare businesses have specific financial requirements needing specialist knowledge.

William Duncan is one of the largest independent practices in Scotland with a dedicated team of specialists providing expert accountancy and related advice to the healthcare sector.

Lead by our Director, Stephen Bargh, our healthcare team supports a wide range of businesses, acting for around 40 medical practices, as well as many more GPs, Locums and Consultants across Scotland.

The financial environment for healthcare professionals is particularly complicated. Our team provides our clients with a range of resources to help guide them through the complexities found within medical accounts, the NHS pension scheme, alongside expert advice on the related tax issues.

We have the technical ability to rival much larger firms, yet our size allows us to offer all clients a truly custom and personal year-round service. Working in partnership with our clients is vitally important to us.

Let us introduce ourselves…….


We are the only accountancy practice in South West Scotland, outwith Glasgow, to be a member of the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA), a network of UK accountancy practices specialising in the medical profession. To be eligible as an AISMA accountant, we must meet demanding requirements as set by the Association. This means you are getting the very best advice when it comes to the accounting, finance, taxation, practice management and pension issues affecting healthcare professionals today.

Our AISMA membership also means we have access to unrivalled financial intelligence on what makes the most profitable, well-managed medical practices. Attuned to change, we are a reliable source of information and advice on the latest government legislation and policy decisions.


With expert knowledge of the NHS pensions scheme we specialise in providing calculations and projections in respect of annual allowance, lifetime allowance and pensions positions. Working closely with our colleagues at WD Wealth Management we offer a fully comprehensive service when it comes to pensions planning.

We are very advanced in the use of digital technology, and our digitally focused team is very experienced in using both Xero cloud accounting and Xero cloud payroll software for GP practices; we can advise on how it works best in a healthcare setting and provide expert training and support in this area.

But don’t just take our word for it… have a look at what our clients think….



Barbara Milby, Kilbirnie Medical Practice
“Working with William Duncan + Co alleviates any sense of apprehension I have about our year end accounts. They operate an incredibly efficient service, so much so we were signing off our December year end accounts by the end of February. From our GPs perspective, they are getting the information much quicker than ever before which is amazing.”


James Johnstone, Turret Medical Centre
“Working with the team has gone really well and we particularly like the continuity of staff. They are professional in approach and easy to work with. Support has always been available when we’ve asked for it, questions are answered quickly and with well-considered responses.”
