Dental Elite Supports LDCs for 4th Year Running

To show its dedication to the industry, Dental Elite recently pledged its support to the Annual Conference of Local Dental Committees 2016 for the fourth consecutive year.

As Gold Sponsor of the event, the leading practice sales agency was proud to be able to offer its knowledge and services to dental professionals debating about the wider issues of dentistry, having already acted for a large number of the attending delegates successfully in the past.

If you missed Dental Elite at the conference, don't worry – the team will be exhibiting at various top calendar events and supporting more local LDC meetings and study groups throughout the next year.

LDCs: BDA will seek your backing for ‘New Contract ‘ ….

Well, the summer has been, and the summer it would seem, that fickle season of the North, has gone. The suntan is rusting, but the LDC fortunately met indoors, by and large, if one ignores the lightning strike hazard of the Golf match.

It intrigues me that Denplan are the Platinum Sponsors of this quintessentially NHS aimed representative body.

It is almost as though Denplan see themselves as the ethical side of ‘mixing’.  I mean… what can THEIR interest be in the machinations of turgid DH driven change?

But perhaps the biggest news to come out of the LDCs appears to be the wording on Page 12 in respect of the 2012 LDC Motions . An informed reply elsewhere on this forum pointed out that the GDPC are obliged to act upon any LDC Motion, and one assumes therefore that given the serious nature of such motions, any reply issued on behalf of the GDPC will carry due authority and weight.

Such is its import that I have taken the liberty of quoting direct from the LDC 2013 papers at http://www.ldcuk.org/documents/doc_download/142-2013-ldc-conference-papers

 

LDC Conference Motions 2012  GDPC Activities

Birmingham LDC motion

This Conference believes that, …, the Department of Health cannot be trusted to install a new dental contract with thetrust of the profession.

GDPC Response:

GDPC understands LDC Conference’s view but … will continue to ensure that the voice of the profession is represented during the formation of any new contract and will not offer support to any new contract without the backing of the profession.

 

So your heard it here first.

The GDPC will not offer support to any new contract without the backing of the profession.

 

Which to my mind means that some form of personal opportunity to say yea or nay to the New Contract is assured.

 

NHS Bullshit Agency?

Maybe you should renew that BDA Membership after all? You are only 2 weeks late.  Which of course is nigh on criminal in the minds of the CQC Factoring Agency [NHSSBS] who seem to have installed a CQC fee collection system which makes DVLA look positively benign.  When the CQC phone you, simply say you have passed your invoice to your accounts office who  “No, you cannot contact”. Or tell them to get lost! 

 

May your June continue be flaming.
