Patients, Professionals, Partners, Performance is the GDC's roadmap for 2016-19.
It has been developed to help us deliver our primary purpose: to protect patients and maintain public confidence in dental services. To do this it sets out our ambition in four key areas:
Patients – We will put patient and public protection at the heart of what we do. We will empower patients to make informed choices about the care they receive
Professionals - We will work closely with the dental profession to identify priority areas for action and use collaborative approaches in tackling them
Partners – We will work with our partners in the dental sector to protect patients and make the system of dental regulation in the UK more effective
Performance – We will continue to strive to become a high performing, proportionate regulator which has the confidence of patients, the public and dental professionals
The 2018 Business Plan sets out our work and priorities for 2018, the final year of Patients, Professionals, Partners, Performance.
