Things you may need to update following the introduction of the Scheme:
Your Plan Brochure
DPAS will be looking to provide you with new plan brochures in the first three months of 2018. Whilst you're waiting to receive these, when giving out plan brochures, please always include a copy of the 'IMPORTANT INFORMATION' flyer. Once you receive your new plan brochures, you can discard these interim flyers. If you use another design agency and print house to produce your plan brochures, then we’ll need to provide you with the correct updated copy to replace the current mention of insurance.
Any posters that refer to the insurance need to be replaced. If you still intend to use these posters, please let us know. In the meantime, please remove any current posters that refer to insurance from view.
Your practice website
From a single line to a benefit levels table, if you mention insurance on your practice website, this will need updating with the new Scheme details.
Fee guide/fee comparison
Please check that your fee guide/fee comparison doesn’t reference insurance.
Practice membership cards
As existing membership cards do not refer to insurance, they do not need updating. The telephone numbers remain vaild.
Practice welcome pack
Please check that where you promote your plan within your practice welcome brochure, that there is no mention of insurance. If there is and you require help in updating this, please get in touch.
