A note from our Chair
It is my privilege to take over as Chair of Greater Glasgow and Clyde LDC from Josephine Weir who worked tirelessly for the past three years when leading this committee as the profession faced the immense challenges which the Covid pandemic brought before us. Having moved forward from that crisis we are now meeting another one head on with the imminent introduction of Determination 1. With concerns relating to funding, laboratory costs, dentist and staff shortages adding to the drive towards an improved work/life balance by many, almost all practices will face a potentially worrying and challenging future as they go forward.
In addition to this matter the LDC will continue to support the profession in all relevant areas of dentistry by engaging with the appropriate people to achieve the best outcome that we can. Subsequently as previously stated by Josephine I would encourage every GDP in Greater Glasgow and Clyde to sign the mandate to ensure that we are in the strongest position possible to do so.
