Departing with Dignity

Leaving a workplace is an inevitable part of professional life and one that can be done well or done very poorly. Dr Simon Parsons, Dentolegal Consultant at Dental Protection, discusses what ‘departing with dignity’ looks and feels like and runs through what steps can be taken to assure continuity of care for valued patients, manage expectations of various stakeholders involved and how to minimise any negative impact on your professional career.
