Do Dental Practices have legally binding Government guidelines on thre ratio of NHS patients to private patients?

General Dental Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear General Dental Council,
1. Could you refer me to the Government guidelines on the ratio of NHS patients to private patients at dental practices in the UK?
2. Are the guidelines enforceable by law?
3. Could you refer me to the Government guidelines on the advertisements for private cosmetic treatments at dental surgeries compared with the information displayed for NHS patients' treatments?

Yours faithfully,

Pat Ruaune

Standards Inbox, General Dental Council

Dear Pat Ruaune,

 

Thank you for your request for information below:

 

1. Could you refer me to the Government guidelines on the ratio of NHS
patients to private patients at dental practices in the UK?

2. Are the guidelines enforceable by law?

3. Could you refer me to the Government guidelines on the advertisements
for private cosmetic treatments at dental surgeries compared with the
information displayed for NHS patients' treatments?

 

Regarding points 1 and 2, you are requesting information about the
government’s and NHS guidelines, and unfortunately the GDC does not hold
this information. The GDC is the regulator of individual dental
professionals, and so laws or guidelines relating to the NHS do not fall
under our remit. I would suggest contacting the NHS for this. A good start
might be the [1]NHS England commissioning website.

 

Regarding point 3, the GDC again does not hold guidelines on the
government’s advertising. You may wish to visit the [2]advertising
standards authority for more information. We do however set our own
guidelines for advertising, which is applicable to all registered dental
professionals. You can find these on our website, on the [3]standards
page.

 

I trust this information has been of help to you.

 

Kind regards,

Jessica
