Breaking free of NHS Scotland – options for 2022

Gareth Stainsby, one of the specialist dental financial advisers, talks in the latest Wesleyan Podcast about NHS dentistry in Scotland. He looks at the key considerations for dentists looking for change in 2022.

In the new year, we often contemplate what we can change about ourselves or our habits to improve our lifestyles.

Last year presented some hard-hitting news headlines for NHS dentists in Scotland due to Covid-19. From the withdrawal of emergency support from April 2022 to the 75% treatment delivery drop and restrictive infection and prevention control procedures, it was a tough year for many NHS dentists.

With the long-expected contract reform on the horizon, you may look for change outside of the usual new year’s resolution stereotypes. Instead you may look at options that are available to you outside of the NHS to provide a better work-life balance.

Gareth shares three key financial areas to explore depending on which stage of your career you’re at to diversify your income.
