Time is not such a great healer, if the attitude of some English ICA members is anything to go by. A rather irate representative of the institute's General Practitioners' Board rang to complain that AccountancyAge.com had dared to describe the Small Practitioner's Association, a splinter group that parted from the GPB some years ago, as being 'of the English ICA'. For the record therefore, TS would like to point out, while SPA membership consists entirely of institute members, and its chairman is an institute council member, it is not officially sanctioned by the institute in the same way as its grander sister, the GPB. Ironically, the GPB now finds itself under threat of being dissolved into a newfangled Practitioners Forum, as part of the institute's reform plans. Those GPB members who are alarmed by this development, and there are a fair few, will perhaps be looking at the SPA's comparative lack of official status (and therefore its freedom to survive) with considerable jealousy, rather than trying to play down its significance.
