Advice on fee sharing

    Can anyone with any experience with fee sharing / room rental please give me a bit of advice on how the arrangement generally works. I have my own fully equipped private practise which I use on a part time basis (i.e. I take my own telephone & online bookings and see these patients as and when required). The clinic is therefore available when I am not using it and I am considering advertising it for another podiatrist to use for their own clientele. Would it be better to advertise it as a practise rental with a fixed rental rate for say one or two days a week or should I offer a fee sharing arrangement? If the latter, what is the usual percentage split ? It is a clean, smart, well-equipped clinic (no biomechanics assessment facility) with parking outside in an area where there is not a great deal of foot traffic. I plan on investing in a local advertising drive at it has been some time since I have done this. As mentioned, I do not have a receptionist so can anyone suggest how logistics would work of taking bookings for myself and other podiatrist and how it generally works with costs of consumables etc.? Any advice appreciated.

    Hi Alice,
    Renting your room to another podiatrist does not sound like a good idea.
    They could potentially steal your clientele or your business. Better off renting to a different practitioner (physio, massage, reflexology).

    Are you in Australia? From my understanding.... With a fee sharing arrangement you would still be actually employing them. If you are a member of the Association you could speak to the HR hotline for accurate advice.
