Private Practice Inspections

If you run a private practice and are concerned about compliance with the mass of legislation you are supposed to observe it might be sensible to arrange a practice visit from a fellow clinician who has done the job for many years. This pastoral visit will allow you to hear a fair, independent assessment of your practice without anyone else finding out about the results. This discrete service could save you some embarrassment ahead of the Care Quality Commission demanding access to your premises to carry out the same examination but without the discretion or the support that would help you move rapidly to a state of compliance. The CQC will be looking at dentistry from 2011 onwards.

Legislation in this field is fiendishly complicated and poorly understood. We have experts available who can come along and lecture to small or large groups of practitioners and practice managers to bring everyone up to speed. This could be arranged for a wider group of practitioners in a locality, town or city.

If you want to know how to carry out an in-house risk assessment under various pieces of legislation that can be included easily. The subsequent issue of risk management can also be addressed. Telephone support is always available.
