NHS to Private Conversion

If you’re uncertain about what the future of NHS dentistry holds and you’d like to move more towards private practice with less reliance on NHS work – or be completely independent from NHS dentistry – we can help.

Introducing a private payment plan as a vehicle to either partially (principal transition) or fully (entire practice) convert from NHS to private practice is a tried and tested method that many practices have already successfully undertaken.

The benefits of practicing privately can include:

  • Clinical freedom and the option to offer a wider range of treatments
  • The control to determine your own future and career development
  • The availability to spend more time with your patients
  • Unlimited business growth potential
  • A less stressful, target driven, culture

The benefits of introducing a private payment plan when looking to convert from NHS to Private practice include:

  • Guaranteed recurring income to your business
  • An option for patients to budget for their private care
  • Nurture patient loyalty and encourage regular attendance
  • Ethically cross and upsell other treatments when patients attend regularly

The obvious benefit of working with Patient Plan Direct to introduce a private payment plan to transition from NHS to Private practice is our low administration fee of £1.20 per patient per month – 2 to 3 times more cost effective than working with other plan providers. This ensures you are able to maximise the income your plan generates and/or keep the cost of your plan pricing lower for patients, which can result in increased uptake.
