Perthshire’s Blackhills Clinic has been selected to demonstrate best practice in management in a highly influential government review publication.
It is the first time that a Scottish practice has been asked to contribute to the Parliamentary Review that highlights outstanding leadership across the UK.
Paul Stone, Blackhills’ clinical director, said: “I couldn’t believe that we had been selected as the only UK dental practice to give a report to such a prestigious and highly-regarded publication.
“We have been asked to respond to the 2014 Review topic of raising standards in private healthcare which is an issue we really believe in and work hard to maintain within the clinic and among all the staff and specialists.”
Paul will work with his team at their Auchterarder clinic on compiling their report which, when published in December, will reach 150,000 people. The aim of the review is to highlight the best practice of outstanding leaders in their field so the contributors, such as Blackhills, can act as templates for reform, development and improvement.
Parliamentary Review director Daniel Yossman said: “We don’t just pluck businesses out of the air for the review. Experienced research staff work tirelessly to source the outstanding practitioners in each sector whose work and good practice set them apart as key influencers.
“This is the first year we have featured a private healthcare review because we wanted to look at how it worked differently to the NHS. Blackhills Clinic is seen as an outstanding representative and their example will help to raise standards and set agenda within their field for years to come.”
The Parliamentary Review 2014 will be released in December.
