Executive Director, Strategy
General Dental Council
The General Dental Council (GDC) have embarked on a significant and long-term program of regulatory reform. Matthew Hill will be discussing “Shifting the balance: a better, fairer system of dental regulation”, the GDC’s strategic approach to shift the balance of activity in dental regulation in the U.K., making the system better for patients and fairer for dental professionals.
The GDC’s vision is a collaborative system in which the issue is dealt with in the right place, delivering the right outcomes for patients and the public at the right cost and within an acceptable timeframe. One in which the very broad range of levers held by various parties across the system – regulators, the professions, providers, educators and many others – provides the agile and proportionate regulation that current legislation and processes do not achieve. Read more about this topic on the GDC’s website.
