Removing proposed new regulatory body for dental practices.

Comment 13th August 2010

Dentistry is already a very heavily regulated body – General Dental Council, PCT,s and bodies such as Denplan. To add a new regulatory body, the Care Quality Commissin, is totally unnecessary. The few private practices who fail to come under the PCT or Denplan regulatory checks do need some form of monitoring. This would be better achieved by extending  the remit of the PCT's or Denplan's annual checks to these practices.

Most practices in this country are mixed NHS and Private. As such they already have rigorous annual checks from the NHS  and also bodies such as Denplan. To add another monitoring body is not only unnecessary but is also a waste of taxpayers money in these tight fiscal times.

Why does this matter?

This idea is totally unnecessary in an already heavily regulated profession. Another layer of beaurocracy is a waste of money.
