NELSON - The staff of
"Dentistry for All", a largely NHS based dental practice at 109 Scotland Road,
Nelson, celebrated being one of the only practices in the UK (maybe the only one
so far!) to be awarded both admittance to the BDA Good Practice Scheme
and the Investors in
for All” is a six-surgery practice run by Nicholas
Taylor, Judith Taylor, and Ian Redfearn,
working predominantly within the NHS.
"It is our experience that these
two awards complement one another very well", said Ian
Redfearn. "The Good Practice Scheme recognizes our commitment to
attaining a high standard in all aspects of providing dental services to the
community. This is not possible without a high quality practice team and the IIP
award demonstrates our investment in staff development. Gaining either of these
awards would not have been possible without the staff’s support and dedication."
Lynn Andriotis & Nicholas Taylor
with most of the practice team were Gordon Prentice
MP, who has in the past highlighted problems of access to NHS dentistry in the
House of Commons, Dr Gary Whittle, (local Consultant in Dental Public Health),
Nick Ward (Associate Postgraduate Dental Dean North West Deanery), and Mrs.
Sheila Townson (non executive director of Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale PCT).
