Season’s greetings to all!
As we see out the final weeks of 2019, we would like to wish all our friends and colleagues the very best for the New Year! Here are a few words from members of our Board…
Shalin Mehra, Chairman
“Rodericks has seen substantial growth this year. We have completed 25 acquisitions, as well as welcoming 604 new colleagues and 149 self-employed clinicians to our ever-growing family. We have also seen excellent progress by the operational team in delivering an improved patient journey through their clinical efficiency project. Our clinical team have delivered great support, development and career pathway opportunities for our self-employed clinicians by ensuring good clinical governance and compliance and facilitating the provision of high quality care to our patients. In addition, our fabulous finance team have supported all our professionals throughout the group, providing the information they have needed to achieve their goals.
“I would like to extend a big thank you to everyone for their on-going hard work and commitment!”
Jonathan Gardner, CEO
“I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome I have received since joining the team. I have really enjoyed being out in practices in Northampton, Manchester and Buckinghamshire, and it’s been great to meet so many of you in person. I have been incredibly impressed with the high level of patient care being delivered by colleagues and clinicians. Your commitment to patients, and each other, is inspiring and I feel privileged to be part of the team going forward.
“I would also like to welcome new colleagues who have recently joined the Rodericks family. We are here to support you so if you need anything or have any queries, let us know. I am excited about the year ahead and look forward to working with you all as we continue to grow and evolve as a group.”
Dawn Farrell, Chief Operating Officer
“I am really proud to have been part of the growth of our business this year. We are working hard to ensure that we deliver the best support to our teams in practice, helping them to continue offering high standards of patient care. I would like to thank all the practice professionals, clinicians, area managers, practice managers and support centre colleagues for all of your hard work and commitment.
“We are expecting a busy start to 2020 as we continue to support practice teams and help them deliver exceptional patient care. I hope you all enjoy the break and I look forward to seeing what the New Year will bring to Rodericks!”
Cathie Brady, Chief Clinical Officer
“We have achieved many things in 2019. For example, changes have been implemented following feedback from our teams during the educational roadshow in early 2019. Additional materials have been made available for treating private patients and CPD events have been arranged in North and South-West locations. We have also built upon our career pathway opportunities for dentists and dental nurses, improved the support available and introduced a peer-review system for clinicians working with the new perio guidelines. Our new comprehensive CPD programme includes hands-on days and focus events for EEA, overseas and Foundation Dentists. I would like to thank everyone who made all of this happen.
“Your feedback is crucial as we evolve. If something isn’t right, let us know. We would also welcome suggestions on how you’d like us to communicate with you – we are here for you.”
Gareth York, Chief Financial Officer
“We have made significant steps forward this year in our ambitions to be a leading dental corporate. We’ve added quality practices to our already strong network and maintained very high standards. This growth doesn’t happen without the input of everyone across the business, so well done to all involved!
“We are currently well-financed and have a strong reputation in the market for what we do. This will bring us opportunities for continued growth through 2020, whilst ensuring the full support and integration of the practices we’ve already acquired. We’re building something very special at Rodericks and by maintaining high professional standards in everything that we do, we will provide exciting opportunities for all.”
