Bishop Fleming Corporate Finance has provided strategic advice to PCH Dental CIC, the dental arm of Peninsula Community Health, on the separation of the business from the existing group.
PCH Dental was specifically formed and commissioned to provide NHS Primary Care Dental Services to some of Cornwall’s most vulnerable patients. The company provides specialist and emergency dental and orthodontic services, with ninety dentists and support staff in thirteen locations across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Bishop Fleming advised the Board of Directors on the business transfer agreement with a multidisciplinary team providing strategic, corporate finance, tax, and VAT advice across a broad range of issues. Business Lawyer UK provided legal input for the Board with KPMG and Bond Dickinson advising Peninsula Community Health.
Paul Critchley, Managing Director at PCH Dental said “In what have been uncertain times for the business, we are absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure the future of dental provision in the county. As a staff-owned community interest company, we remain totally committed to making dental care available to patients; regardless of their age, background, ability and situation.”
Andy Hawkes, Corporate Finance Director at Bishop Fleming said “We are really pleased to have been able to assist the Board of PCH Dental in completing the transfer and securing the future of the business. We look forward to working closely with Paul and the team in what is now an exciting development phase for the company.”
