theBankDoctor website is a Not for Profit online resource centre helping SMEs better understand and deal with the challenges of funding a small business. It was launched in 2013 after it became apparent to Neil Slonim that whilst larger businesses can readily access and afford our specialist banking advice, the businesses which really miss out are the SMEs.

theBankDoctor enables us to share our knowledge with small business owners who most need but can least afford independent and practical banking advice. Most small businesses struggle when dealing with financiers. Whether it is simply getting a business loan or just trying to develop a better understanding of how banks think and operate, its not easy. And finding time to deal with banks can also be a problem. Another challenge is knowing where to go to find quality independent advice on banking and finance matters.

This is where theBankDoctor helps by providing independent, practical tips and information to SMEs which they struggle to get elsewhere. Plus it is all totally free.

theBankDoctor online platform provides this information in a number of ways. By reading our Blog and Media articles SMEs can keep up to date with what is happening in banking and receive a whole bunch of tips on what to do and not to do when dealing with banks.

Ask theBankDoctor posts answers to common banking questions small businesses ask. If followers can’t find the question and answer they are after, they are able to send in their own question.

The Resources page provides simple and practical explanations of the different sources of funding for a small business and the pros and cons of each one. This page explains what can be done and where to go to get the right form of finance for the business.
