As an industry that has been relatively unregulated from a management perspective it has come as quite a shock to many practices to find out just how much work is required.
We are almost a year down the line after CQC registration and many practices are still struggling to cope with the additional workload that has been forced upon us not to mention the added burden of costs associated with compliance.
It sounds like a pretty bleak picture doesn't it?
Actually compliance is a great thing! You're probably reading this thinking I am mad but let me explain...
For many years dental practices have been run as 'dental practices' instead of businesses, little awareness or emphasis on business focus has been evident and difficult lessons have been learned.
Compliance forces us to become more business focused, customer service, patient involvement, team development all things that will ultimately improve our businesses.
Financial management is another key area that has all to often been overlooked in dentistry and difficult lessons have been learned. With the added cost of compliance we are all forced to sit up and take notice of our numbers. With registration fees, equipment testing and validation, team development, the list is endless and costs could soon spiral out of control.
In order to achieve compliance in an efficient and cost effective manner it's important to implement systems that work, don't let compliance give you a headache, let us show you how to set up and run the management systems that work!
