Key considerations when converting from NHS to private

This webinar will aim to give the observer a detailed understanding of the financial planning matters that need to be carefully considered when moving from NHS dentistry to private dentistry, whether that be fully or partially.

The session will cover the impact on pension provision, but will also go into the loss of the wider basket of benefits provided by the NHS and the impact this could have on a dentists family protection.

It will also cover the lost benefits in the instance of short and long-term sick pay, death in service and also dependents and spouse death benefits.

Learning outcomes

  • The alternative options available to save for retirement as a replacement for the lost NHS provision
