NHS dentistry discussed: the HR, employment law and legal issues affecting NHS practices

Join Zoe Close and Sarah Buxton as they discuss and share advice on the biggest HR, employment law and legal challenges that are affecting NHS dental practices.

This includes the recent court case of Breakingbury versus Croad (2021) in which the judge ruled the NHS dental practice owner vicariously liable for the clinical treatment carried out by an associate dentist, due to employed status indicators such as NHS UDA targets.

Key topics include

  • What vicarious liability is and what it means for NHS practice owners
  • The vital information practice owners should have within their contractual agreements to ensure they are protected
  • NHS dentists facing possible clawback and what they can do to protect their interests
  • How the NHS UDA targets and PPE imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting dental teams and how to deal with this in the right way
  • What happens to the dental team and their contracts when making the move from NHS to private dentistry.

Plus, there is a live Q&A throughout where you can ask Sarah and Zoe any burning questions you may have!
