Simplyhealth signs Outwood Dental Practice in 50/50 Partnership
Simplyhealth signs another 50/50 Dental Practice Partnership with Outwood Dental Practice in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
In a statement a Simplyhealth spokesperson explained: “The new partnership between Simplyhealth and Outwood Dental Practice (www.outwooddentalcare.co.uk) will enable the practice to further develop, grow and continue to serve its local community.
“The long-established family-based practice offers both private and NHS dentistry, which includes 500 patients on Denplan payment plans. The practice focuses on providing quality preventative care to its patients and specialist dental services including cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
“As part of an ongoing commitment to investment and innovation in the dental market, Simplyhealth’s partnership scheme offers dental practices the opportunity to enter into an equal partnership that plays to the strengths of both parties for their mutual benefit.”
The partnership model has been designed to enable dentists to retain day-to-day clinical management and continue the focus on the quality of care provided with Simplyhealth providing support and expertise in business services, development and patient insights gained from their existing successful Denplan services as well as through helping over three million people with their everyday health needs across the group.
Principle dentists at Outwood Dental Practice, Dr Christopher Finnerty and Dr Christine Gratton commented: “Chris and I have been in partnership at Outwood for 20 years and Chris was looking for a route to retirement within the next few years. Having looked at various options the only one that made sense for ourselves, the practice, team and patients was the option of partnership with Simplyhealth.
“We’ve always had a good working relationship with Simplyhealth and their products and support have been connected with our practice for 25 years. We have worked with and trusted their advice and guidance to help keep the practice both developing and compliant over these years.
“It was important for us to go into partnership with someone who would want to keep improving and growing the practice and who I felt we would have a strong working relationship with going forwards.”
Caroline Coleman, Managing Director of Simplyhealth Professionals added: “We’re delighted to enter into a partnership with Outwood Dental Practice who have run a fantastic practice for many years and have an amazing team. Working in partnership with this team we can improve access to healthcare for more patients.
“It’s great to see our dental partnerships continue to grow as we diversify our health and care solutions and we look forward to working closely with the team to continue providing an excellent service and develop new services into the future.”
