Services We Offer

24 Hour Retirement

The process of 24-hour retirement from your NHS Contract can be complex and time-consuming.

If you are a sole contractor, notifying the NHS of your intended retirement will trigger the termination of your NHS Contract. Without taking steps to protect your contract, there is no guarantee the NHS will recommission services from your practice.

Let our 24-Hr Retirement Service take away the headache by managing this for you. Our team will guide you through each stage including:

  • Advising you on the need of a temporary partnership
  • Drawing up a temporary partnership agreement
  • Advising you on CQC registration requirements
  • Issuing notices to the NHS
  • Tracking your 24-hr retirement throughout
  • With our Acuity Law 24-Hr Retirement Service, you can say goodbye to tension…hello pension!

CQC Registration

Registering with the CQC is a lengthy process. When combined with a dental practice sale or purchase, a small mistake can cost weeks of delays. Failing to register with the CQC can put a stop to a dental practice sale or purchase.

Our team at Acuity Law have assisting hundreds of dentists with their successful applications.

Whether you are making a new application to register or require amendments to your existing registration, our team are here to assist you from applying for your enhanced DBS check to receiving your registration certificate.

We take away the paperwork and headache for you, allowing you to concentrate on your business and dentistry.

Buying Or Selling A Dental Practice

Buying or selling a dental practice will probably be one of the biggest financial transactions you will ever be involved in.

Whilst your years at Dental School will have trained you to provide an excellent clinical service for your patients, no one ever teaches you how to buy or sell a dental business.

That is why you need to ensure your legal team are fully experienced in the volume of regulations affecting dental practices rather than just contract law.

Acuity Law are recommended by many of the leading specialist dental accountants, specialist financial advisers and bank healthcare managers as well as other leading advisers to the dental industry.

Whether you are, or intend to practice as a sole trader, partnership or expense sharing arrangement, or through a limited company and are considering buying or selling, call us before the other side do.
