I have been on the LDC for over 15 years and have seen many changes, not all of them negative. Back in 2002 I was heavily involved in Options for Change and pioneered the move to PDS for many practices in 2004 which for 2 years gave many GDP’s the best working conditions of their lives.
I believe, with the New Contract looming, that we have opportunities ahead to benefit patients and profession alike. I remain full committed and wedded to NHS dentistry, I believe in the aims and ideals of the NHS, and evidence suggests that patients by a large majority feel that way as well.
Rest assured, as long as I am on the LDC I will fight for adequately funded NHS that will be attractive as a long term career.
