Third NHS Confidence Monitor survey launched

NHS Confidence Monitor
Have your say with the third NHS Confidence Monitor

Practice Plan has launched its third NHS Confidence Monitor survey to find out your thoughts on NHS dentistry.

The NHS Confidence Monitor was first launched in May and June 2015 and was created to better understand the profession’s confidence levels in NHS dentistry.

As previously, the survey will monitor the profession’s confidence in:

  • Future career prospects
  • Remuneration levels
  • Getting the balance of treatment versus prevention within the NHS right
  • The ability of the team to work effectively within the NHS
  • Whether patients will be happy with level of care provided.

‘I think it is very important to understand the landscape of what is going on,’ Judith Husband, who sits on the BDA’s principal executive committee, said.

‘That is why I believe the ongoing, enhanced NHS Confidence Monitor survey is so important and I would urge team members to have their say.

‘No one wants to stop positive progress – but, from the Government’s perspective, this should be in the context of an open and honest debate and a willingness to listen to what we, as a profession, have to say.

‘This is a great opportunity to help facilitate that dialogue.’
