The General Dental Council (GDC) has published the outcome report from the consultation on its three-year strategy, which closed earlier this year.

The consultation, which received 79 responses from individuals and organisations, sought views about proposals for how the regulator intends to deliver its broad statutory objectives over the next three years, and the associated costs.

Head of Policy and Research Programme at the GDC, Rebecca Cooper, said, “As with any consultation, a variety of views were expressed, but we are encouraged by the broad support for the direction of travel set out in the strategy, particularly in relation to continued collaborative working with the professions.”

The GDC’s new approach to strategy development brings more visibility to the relationship between its regulatory activity and the fees it charges, providing increased transparency.

Work is underway to finalise the strategy, which is due for publication later this year.
