We are here to help
Support is offered to all Norfolk dentists who are wish to participate in the scheme and ranges from simple telephone advice to practice visits.
It is important to understand that PASS can only help those who recognise that they are in need of support and are open to change if necessary.
Discussion of problems at an early stage with colleagues who have an understanding of the dentist’s point of view and circumstances can be invaluable.
With the support that PASS can arrange or coordinate involvement with a more formal resolution may be avoided.
Please note that the support that PASS provides is completely confidential.
