Why BDA Good Practice?

BDA Good Practice provides a quality assurance framework that helps you keep your practice up to date, develop systems for the delivery of care and communicate your achievements to your patients.

BDA Good Practice requirements are underpinned by professional, legal and ethical responsibilities. The requirements are kept under review and are regularly updated to ensure that you are aware of and meet your professional responsibilities.

Developing effective systems requires a confident, professional and inspired team to work together and benefit the practice. BDA Good Practice is a team activity that offers team members greater ownership of their role and increases opportunities for training and development. Staff development can help your business performance and raise your profile – with patients, regulators, primary care organisations and the wider community.


Displaying the personalised membership plaque and using the BDA Good Practice member logo on your website and practice literature, allows you to communicate to your patients that you are engaged with your professional association, that you are working to good practice standards and are willing to be assessed for compliance. Working through the requirements will help you be confident that you have robust policies and procedures in place and can demonstrate a commitment to providing your patients with a high level of service.​ ​
