Julian English, FMC’s editorial director, draws on his 25 years’ experience in dentistry to discuss the future of the NHS contract.
In this week’s episode, we speak to Julian English – editorial director at FMC – who takes on the topic of the NHS contract and what he thinks this should look like to benefit both the dental team and patient.
Working in dentistry for more than a quarter of a century, he discusses how he sees the future unfolding and his advice for those graduates about to enter the profession.
‘The view is that after the pandemic and these lockdowns are over and people have been vaccinated, I think the new contract will come into play,’ he says.
‘Anything that saves the government money – as no government in the world is going to have any money. The public will have some money to probably go private. But because the government have no money, they will jump, in my humble opinion, to launch this new prototype contract.’
