I`ve just had a `phone call from a company conducting a survey on behalf of the BDA. The survey was particularly interested in my use of the internet and what way I get my "dentistry intelligence" (new ideas, training ideas etc). When asked about the "most important source of dental information" I gave GDPUK as my answer; to be honest, I didn`t expect the response from the lady that I got: "Oh I hear that so much".
"The better it gets the more the DH and others go out of their way to critcise. An interesting approach to the open sharing of information"
"Changes in the NHS, commercial pressures and the challenges of regulation have definitely made it more difficult to sit back and enjoy your dentistry.However, I firmly believe that GDPUK provides a wonderful family where practitioners can communicate, obtain support and advice. Practitioners need no longer be isolated. Help and advice is just a posting away."
