…how will staying in the system give you a professional high?
Key findings from the Dental Working Hours 2014/15 and 2015/16 Motivation Analysis report (Published 8 December 2016) show that the more time dentists spend on NHS/Health Service work, the lower their levels of motivation with half of all survey respondents saying they often think about leaving the profession.
These findings are backed by a survey carried out by Simplyhealth Professionals in February 2017* in which 83% of respondents said there was a direct correlation between morale and working hours. The survey also highlighted the low morale working as an NHS dentist** and almost two thirds would like to reduce their NHS commitment to some extent.
