Welcome to Independent practice – it’s a great place to be! I recommend doing the ‘Setting Up in Independent Practice’ course run by ASLTIP – that will give you lots of information on what needs to be in place. I have a checklist that I put together when I set up which I’m happy to share with you if you email me. It has all the basic bits you need to do plus things I felt I wanted to do when setting up. Some people get everything in place before starting and others grow their practices more organically as they gather more clients. There’s no right or wrong as long as you have the basic legal stuff place – it really depends what you feel comfortable with. If you can link up to your local ASLTIP group that will be a great help too. Good luck with it all!
