85 Bupa practices under threat. Are you affected?

Bupa Dental Care, one of the leading dental providers in the UK, has recently announced that it’s possible 85 of its dental practices will be cut from providing dental care. MediCruit understand 41 are earmarked for closure with 44 under review. This decision has been made due to a decline in the recruitment off staff in these locations. The 85 possible closures are set to affect around 1,200 staff across the country, with many finding alternative positions or being offered a position at other BUPA practices. It is a significant blow to the recruitment crisis currently facing the dental industry.

The recruitment crisis has been a growing concern in the dental industry for a number of years, with many practices struggling to attract and retain qualified dentists, dental hygienists, and dental nurses. The shortage of dental professionals has been attributed to several factors, including increasing workloads and targets, providing NHS treatments, lack of flexibility and incentives to stay in the profession.

Bupa Dental Care has stated that the decision to close the practices was made because patients at the affected practices were not able to access the NHS dental service they need. This highlights another issue facing the dental industry in the UK, which is the lack of access to NHS dental services for many patients. The closure of these practices will only make it more difficult for patients to access the care they need, which could lead to further health problems in the future.

The practices effected are listed below, should you be an employee or know of someone that may be affected and would like some advice, MediCruit is here to help!
