Simplyhealth has hired a new Director, Richard Halley, to run their 50/50 dental partnerships division and lead the growth of this business area. Richard Halley has joined from Mercer, where he was based in Sydney, providing consultancy advice to a number of Australia’s largest employers. He previously worked for Simplyhealth for four years from 2005 to 2009, when he was Head of B2B and Dental Sales.
Simplyhealth told GDPUK: “Richard Halley has been brought in to oversee the team who work on the Dental Partnerships programme. The team are looking to partner 50/50 with dental practices (Principals) who want to retire over the next 3-5 years but still want to be involved with their practice and make the clinical decisions.
“Simplyhealth support the Principal by providing business and legal advice, risk and compliance advice, marketing, communication with staff and patients etc but work in partnership with the practice so they make joint decisions for the practice. We then help the Principal to find a new Principal to take over when they retire and then continue to work with the new Principal.
“Richard is currently looking at new practices for us to partner with and overseeing the current ones that we are finalising as new partners.”
Richard said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at such an exciting time. Retiring from your dental practice is such an emotive issue due to the long-standing relationships that principal dentists have with their staff and patients so we want to help make this transition as successful as we can for all parties. Our 50/50 partnerships help us to provide practices with the services and support they need to develop their businesses.”
