Investec has launched a specialist division to cater for the financial needs of family doctors.
The new division will concentrate on developing finance packages to help general practitioners on both a personal and corporate level.
The packages will primarily concentrate on loan arrangements, but will also include investment services.
The financing packages will include practice finance for acquisitions and refurbishments, project finance for building purposes, equipment finance and residential mortgages.
Investec Medical Finance head Lesley McCann says: "We believe there is enormous potential to develop this market particularly as we are able to provide a fully comprehensive tailored service."
