Traditionally dentists are independent contractors who choose where to locate their premises and how much NHS dentistry to provide. Over the past 10 years there has been an increase in the number of patients experiencing difficulties in accessing NHS dentistry and during this time there has also been pressure to reform the dental remuneration system. In 2003 major changes were announced in which Primary Care Trusts were to be given responsibility for commissioning NHS dental services and a deadline of October 2005 was set for implementing new contracts. This report looks at how the risks of the service are being managed including the mismatch between supply and demand, the ability of Primary Care Trusts to commission services and variations in oral health.

Finance for Dentists

The Essential Handbook

Finance has become a key issue in dentistry following major recent changes in legislation that allow dentists to conduct business as a corporate body. However, many dentists receive little formal training in finance and can often miss out on extra profits and tax savings, or become reliant upon accountants and financial advisers who may lack dental expertise. This book aims to equip dentists with the knowledge needed to take an active role in their own finances - including taxes, income and expenditure, property matters and retirement - and provide an insight into what they should expect from a specialist financial adviser to the dental profession. Finance for Dentists has been written primarily for dentists and orthodontists currently in or planning to set up in practice, but will also be of interest to dentists employed in hospitals and other organisations within the NHS.

Reforming NHS dentistry

ensuring effective management of risks

Author: Great Britain. National Audit Office

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: N.A

Under new arrangements announced by the Department of Health in 2003, Primary Care Trusts will be required to commission dental services and dentists will be paid for delivering local contracts to meet patients' oral health needs, rather than for each item of treatment. Following consultation, these changes are due to be implemented from October 2005. This NAO report finds that there is a strong rationale for reforming the current system of NHS dentistry in England but highlights significant risks that will need to be managed if new systems are to be effective and provide value for money. Issues discussed include: the new roles and responsibilities that Primary Care Trusts will have to develop in order to implement and manage the new arrangements; problems of access to NHS dentists, particularly in some areas; the shortage of dentists and recruitment needs; the risk that capacity freed up under the new system might not be utilised to the benefit of the NHS; and the level of patient awareness of entitlements, service availability and charges under the new system.

Understanding the Construction Client

Author: David Boyd,Ezekiel Chinyio

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 0470759534

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 328

View: 3643

This book breaks new ground by creating a framework to understand clients’ actions and needs. Most construction management books focus on improving the construction process; this one focuses on a better engagement with the client. It challenges conceptions of both the construction industry and clients’ businesses so that a more effective process and greater client satisfaction can be achieved. The book suggests that ‘buildings are not about building but about changing and developing the client’. The technical, organisational and psychological aspects of this are described and analysed in detail so that current experience can be explained and better practice determined. The book offers well-researched information about clients in a number of sectors - developers, supermarkets, NHS, government, airports and housing associations - which will help you understand what these client’s business or service needs are and how construction fits into this. It demonstrates how to develop an appreciation of the client’s perspective with a toolkit for ensuring successful client engagement. This makes Understanding the Construction Client a user-friendly and practical guide, as well as significant text for academia.
