We have just received our new “Automatic External Defibrillator” or “AED” If a person has a heart attack, their chance of surviving decreases by 10% every minute without treatment. If someone performs CPR (the “kiss of life”) on them, they have a 7% overall chance of survival. BUT With an AED used as soon as possible their chance of survival goes up to well over 50%. We are very proud to have invested in this high-tech equipment which could make the difference between life and death to anyone unfortunate enough to suffer a heart attack on our premises.
We are delighted to announce that Park Street Dental Clinic has bee awarded the highly regarded BDA Good Practice accreditation. What does this mean? The BDA Good Practice Scheme is a quality assurance framework for UK dental practices. By becoming members of the Scheme, practices demonstrate a visible commitment to providing quality dental care to nationally recognised best practice standards. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has accepted that membership of the Scheme is a reliable indication that the practice is using a QA framework. Practices meeting the Scheme standard should be well positioned for meeting CQC compliance.
We are delighted to announce that free Wi-Fi is now available at the practice. Although we try to ensure that our patients will never wait long enough to need Wi-Fi access, we understand that many patients attend with a friend, relative or spouse. They will now be able to catch up on work matters, manage emails or browse the internet in the comfort of our patient lounge.
