What next for NHS dentistry? (09:00-09:50)

We’ll kick-start the event with some of the biggest names in the industry. Join Nigel Jones, Eddie Crouch and Simon Thackeray for this thought-provoking and hard-hitting session.

They will discuss the challenges and talking points that matter in NHS dentistry today.

Nigel, Eddie and Simon will address key issues including:

  • The NHS landscape across the UK and how the COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for change within the industry
  • The current NHS UDA dental targets, the impact this is having on practices and then predictions for what will happen after 1 October 2021
  • How dental teams have responded to and dealt with the current state-of-play of working within the constraints of an NHS contract
  • What the future holds for NHS dentistry including timescales and nature of a potential contract reform.
