Moreton Dental Fees Update

Dear All,

I have had to make the very difficult decision of raising the Moreton Dental prices from 1st November 2021.

This was not an easy decision by any means and one which took several weeks of careful planning and resourcing our current costs.

I hate always having to blame COVID and Brexit but sadly we would not be in this situation if it wasn’t for the past 2 years.

To give you an idea these were the main areas where costs have increased exponentially and we have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic not to make this decision but after discussion with our accountant we can no longer avoid it.

  1. Huge reduction in patient capacity
  2. PPE
  3. Postage and delivery costs
  4. Clincial waste (collection and disposal)
  5. Consumables including dental materials
  6. Wages and staff costs
  7. Utility expenses (energy, electricity heating, telephone and internet)
  8. Business rates
  9. Ventilation costs
  10. Equipment maintenance and repair charges
  11. New equipment
  12. IT costs
  13. Adminstration and reception costs
  14. Cleaning and associated products
  15. Costs associated with fallow time
  16. Time taken out of surgery to complete CQC and HSE inspections
  17. Card charges as no longer allowed to take cash
  18. Agency staff to cover sickness
  19. Loss of staff due to home schooling
  20. My-Moreton internal intranet

 

Other costs we incurred were:
  1. Loss of rent
  2. Laboratory costs
  3. Uniform
  4. Building costs to accommodate social distancing
  5. General maintenance
  6. Loss of earnings due to clinicians contracting Covid
  7. Investing in mental health solutions
  8. Maternity pay
  9. Team evenings to help boost morale

 

Thank you all for your understanding, I look forward to seeing you in the practice soon.

Caroline
