“As a locum GP with a complex work portfolio finding the right accountant was crucial. Honey Barrett came highly recommended and I have been with them since I qualified. I can honestly say I have the utmost trust in their ability to handle my accounts. No detail is overlooked, they are timely, conscientious and thorough, and I genuinely feel they are on side in terms of best representing my circumstances. I would recommend them to other professionals without hesitation. My particular thanks to Liz Densley for all your hard work care and attention with my accounts.”
Dr Catherine Culley
