What would it be like if many of the UK’s PCT’s were to contact those dentists who held children-only contracts and demand that:1. any underperformance was cleared within 60 days and
2. failure to do so would result in withdrawal of the current contract and redirection of the children?
Pure speculation, of course.
But if that did happen – it would be wonderful!
You would have the perfect excuse to offer your patients a childrens membership scheme – and a perfectly incompetent and unpopular Government to blame.
Lemons to lemonade.
Cross your fingers.
