NHS Dentistry: Dental Professions' Confidence Levels Revealed

13:30 - 14:15

Join Nigel Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Practice Plan, as he discusses the results of the latest Confidence Monitor. The survey, first conducted 4 years ago, has consistently revealed unhappiness among dentists in the NHS. With ambiguity increasing around the reform of the NHS England dental contract, Nigel will talk through the current pinch points and what the research says about how it’s impacting dental professionals as well as providing a general market update. As government funding is becoming less likely due to the sustained pressure of the wider NHS, you’ll also hear views on what the NHS should be concentrating on with a new dental contract.

Learning Objectives:

  •        Gain an understanding of the current state of dentistry today
    ·        Understand what your dental peers are thinking
    ·        Understand workings of contract reform and prototype practices
    ·        Insight into what’s influencing contract reform

Practice Plan are a provider of conversion support and practice-branded dental plans.

He has added to his understanding of the healthcare market and the Government’s NHS reform programme through his involvement with the independent sector healthcare providers such as Netcare and Virgin Healthcare.
