A massive blow to the profession as VTs repeat a year, no new graduates, EU dentists heading home and the difficulty taking on dentists out with Scotland.
It doesn’t matter how long qualified you are if you have never had a Scottish NHS list number you will be offered COVID support along the same lines as the recently qualified vocational trainees.
As we all know the only way NHS dentistry has survived this long is through volume of work and COVID has put a complete halt on this.
We have a crisis on our hands here and it is about to get a whole lot worse.
We need solutions to these problems and the SDA is welcoming everyone’s input.
