The BADT and BSDHT have today launched an inititive to gain prescribing rights for Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists.
Some work has already taken place but to take it further funding will be required. As this will affect us all it has been suggested that we all contribute to this and on this point I am in total agreement. All too often the few drive the changes that affect how we work, we all need to contribute to this fund. We need to contribute in two ways:
1. Money.....dig deep
2. How has not being able to prescribe affected you and more inportant your patients, they need cases from us all.
I am lucky in that I have put a PGD in place in my practice so I can use LA etc when I need, if I couldn't do this then it would hamper my work and may it inconvenient for my patients.
So hands in pockets please......not often I ask for money
