GDC to host Cardiff meeting
Members of the public will have the chance to express their views and find out how decisions are made by the General Dental Council at its September meeting in Cardiff.
The move towards a smaller, fully appointed Council with an increased lay membership, and the new exam for overseas dentists, are two subjects the UK dental regulator will discuss at the meeting on Tuesday 18 September.
The meeting will begin by allowing members of the public to put questions to the president and members of the Council in English and Welsh. This aims to give people an opportunity to find out more about the work of the GDC and the issues to be discussed at the meeting.
GDC president Hew Mathewson said: ‘Our role is to protect patients and safeguard standards in UK dentistry. This meeting provides members of the public in Wales with the opportunity to ask us about our work.’
The meeting will take place from 11.15am at the St David’s Hotel, Havannah Street, Cardiff.
