If you’re already running your own medical practice, Specialist Financial Advisers from Wesleyan Financial Services can also support you on a range of business protection issues.
You can talk to us about things like protecting the practice against some of the costs of losing a key person, protecting practice loans or insuring to provide funds for efficient succession planning. We can also help you with life cover for employees.
Time to hang up your scrubs? We can help you plan for your retirement, whether you’re an NHS worker or own your own practice.
Get advice on:
- The tapered annual allowance
- Your NHS pension lump sum

Please bear in mind that advice in relation to inheritance tax planning is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
From your income to your GP surgery, we can help you find the right protection from our selected panel of providers.
Discover a range of flexible plans designed to suit your lifestyle and secure the right level of cover for your family's finances.
For example, Wesleyan’s personal income protection plan is designed to dovetail with your NHS sick pay. It provides a regular monthly income if you’re off work due to illness, injury or accident.
Applying for a mortgage as a doctor can be tricky when lenders don’t understand the short-term nature of your training contracts. We can find you a lender that considers your long-term earning potential when assessing your application.
As your mortgage is secured on your home, your home may be repossessed if you don’t keep up repayments on your mortgage.
Make the most of your money with our advice on a range of investment options. Grow your wealth for short-term goals or create a reserve for the long-term. We’re committed to helping you secure your financial future in the most tax-efficient way.
Please remember the value of investments and any income can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest.

Offering business funding solutions tailored to GPs, we'll be on hand to guide you through the whole process.
Please note that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) does not regulate commercial mortgages.

Frequently asked questions
Is the advice free?The meeting itself is on a no obligation basis. If you do choose to take out a Wesleyan financial product as a result, there’ll be an initial advice fee and often ongoing management charges to pay. While our Specialist Financial Advisers will often make recommendations, there’s no obligation to take out any Wesleyan products or services.
What should I prepare ahead of the meeting?To make the most of your time with your Specialist Financial Adviser, it can be handy to have your questions ready, as well as any information or documents relating to your finances (such as savings or investment details).
You may also be asked to complete a ‘Financial Outline’ ahead of the session. This enables you to tell your Adviser about your current circumstances and future goals, so they can prepare an appointment tailored to you.
If you choose not to complete the Financial Outline in advance, you’ll need to do it as part of your appointment.
How long does the meeting last?An initial meeting with a Specialist Financial Adviser will typically last around one hour. However, this does depend on the complexity of your circumstances.
