Just like any other business, surgeries, clinics and practices need to operate in a way that covers their outgoings and generates a profit. The medical sector also faces a set of unique challenges when it comes to maintaining profitability: the constraints of insurance payouts, for example, the need for specialist premises and the comparatively high outgoings associated with remaining up-to-date from a professional perspective can all make it harder for medical facilities to maintain healthy finances.
