Abstract:About 300 practice renunciations of general practitioners take place every year. The aim of this study is to identify critical success factor(s) and barriers for practice renunciation of general practitioners. Interviews and a literature search are conducted to identify influencing factors. Twenty influencing factors are incorporated in a survey which was sent to GP’s. By the use of this survey significant influencing factors and a critical success factor for practice renunciation were identified. The critical success factor for practice renunciation is “Drafting of contracts which determinate 71.1% of the cases in the correct group. The other three significant influencing factors are “Valuation of intangible assets” “Tax settlement for discontinuation of the practice of tax administration” and “After transfer, the former practice holder can remain working in practice as a HIDHA/Observer”. Furthermore, regarding the importance of different factors, two “soft-factors” related to practice renunciation differed significantly between both groups. Two differentiating factors were identified: First, if my successor will continue patient care the same way and if he is like-minded as me on business management. The two factors “Drafting of contracts…” and “Tax settlement for discontinuation…” are also perceived as the main barriers in practice renunciation of all GP’s.
