What it takes to make a successful transition from NHS to private
Moving away from the NHS to private dentistry is a significant decision and one that requires detailed analysis and planning, ensuring any transition (partial or full) is a success for you, your team and your patients.
The appetite for exploring the transition to private has never been as prevalent.
In this webinar, we’ll cover why now may be the best time to make the move, how we can support your practice in assessing whether the move is the right strategy, and the key steps to ensure a successful transition.
Janice, from Patient Plan Direct, is joined by Minal and Rohit from High Street Dental Evesham, who completed a highly successful NHS to private transition earlier in 2022.
Janice, Minal and Rohit will cover:
- Why now is a good time to consider the transition
- How to conduct a viability and financial analysis to plan for a successful transition
- How to ensure the practice team is fully engaged with the change
- How to communicate the change to patients
- How Patient Plan Direct can help with every step of the journey
- Why working with Patient Plan Direct will ensure you retain more income versus working with other providers.
