Is Your Consent Procedure Compliant with All GDC Requirements?

As a leading provider of dental indemnity, we have witnessed firsthand the ever-changing landscape of dental claims and consent procedures.

Consent is a widely recognised concern in dental practices, and it has become increasingly common in the UK with the rise in claims. Hence, a rigorous and well-thought-out consent procedure is essential, plus ensuring that your consent documentation is extremely clear. Furthermore, if you receive a claim, it’s crucial to promptly notify your dental indemnity provider. With legal firms openly promoting ‘no win, no fee’ options, individuals may be more inclined to pursue claims.
