Have you submitted your CPD?
Almost 2,200 DCPs still not CPD-compliant with just one week to the deadline.
On 31 July 2018, almost 36,000 dental care professionals (DCPs) reached the end of their five-year CPD cycle, and each of them need to have submitted their CPD statement to the General Dental Council (GDC) no later than 28 August 2018. With just one week to go, the GDC has revealed there are still 2,187 DCPs yet to make their submission. The regulator is keen to highlight that this could lead to them being at risk of falling off the register and no longer able to practice.

SEPSIS – DO YOU KNOW THE SIGNS?
Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition previously known as blood-poisoning and septicemia. It is an overreaction to an infection in which the body attacks its own tissues and organs. Sepsis claims 44,000 lives in the UK and affects more than 250,000 people every year, but can be treated effectively with antibiotics and other therapies if caught promptly.
It’s a sad day for BADN
It is with great sadness that BADN has learned of the death of Roma Coultas, who was President of the Association in 1956. Roma, who was still an Honorary Life Member, celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this year. Our condolences to Roma’s family.
