Results by Country Introduction – Working Patterns, Motivation and Morale
In this report, weekly hours devoted to dentistry refers to the hours spent on primary care NHS/Health Service or private dentistry, and relates to both clinical and non-clinical work, including administrative and management duties. All survey respondents have undertaken some NHS/Health Service work during one or both reporting years 2018/19 and 2019/20 (for more detail in the report population, please refer to the Methodology).
The tables relating to NHS/Private Share in the following chapters consider dentists’ working patterns (as measured in the survey) comparing those who spend more of their time on NHS/Health Service work with those who spend more time on private undertakings. Due to differing contractual arrangements, results should not be compared across the four UK countries.
