The almost total lack of support for our nation of small businesses from the Authorities set up to support and represent them is utterly disgraceful. GDC is one of many. Funded by the people they let down, time after time. It’s time for these people to step up, or step out of the way.

I feel CDO failed to show leadership, clarity and guidance to the profession. Information was given to media before us with very little support on how to conduct the practice.
On a humanitarian level she showed no Compassion or empathy with us . We really felt we abandoned

They pay out disputes by default. Dental professionals have to pay this AS WELL AS their indemnity. Their figures claim they spend over £22m on 'staff fees'? What's all that about? £6m on meetings? Really? £4m on admin? Come on! Absolute con!

I am disgusted, appalled and feel dreadfully let down by the GDC. DCPs have been given no mention with regards to help during during lockdown. We have just been left to manage. We have not worked since the end of March and as a hygienist I dont think I shall be returning before August. I therefore, will not have worked for 4 months and yet the GDC still expect me to pay for I years ARF. It is a joke, and not a funny one. I'm so glad I'm near retirement as I'm ashamed to be associated with such an organisation

The handling of Covid19 by shutting practices down when they provide health care to the public was a big mistake. Germany did not close any Dental Practices. They had to stay open as a health care provider. Private practices may never recover from the long shut down and you should provide compensation if that happens.
