Wang S, Chalkley M, Tilley C, 2012, Comparing the treatment provided by UK and non-UK trained health professionals: dentists in Scotland, Journal of Health Services Research & Policy, Vol: 17, Pages: 227-232-227-232
Objectives To examine differences in the amount of treatment provided by UK and non-UK trained dentists in the Scottish National Health Service.Methods Using a unique administrative data set, we utilize multivariate fixed effects regression models that control for patient characteristics and unobserved heterogeneity across dentists to explore the extent of treatment delivered.Results Non-UK trained dentists initially provide more treatment than UK-trained dentists, but over approximately two years of practice their treatment converge.Conclusions As with many OECD countries, the UK relies on foreign-trained health professionals to address workforce shortages and one concern is whether they provide equivalent health care to their domestically trained counterparts. Whilst there is a difference in the amount of treatment provided by UK and non-UK trained dentists, the effect is modest and transitory.
