- NHS and private patients
- Saving with Lemerle since 2016
Owning two successful dental practices means juggling day-to-day business management with a busy patient list, leaving little time for dentist Paul to explore how to save on his utilities. Understandably, patient care always comes first, so scrutinising overheads and negotiating better deals just wasn’t a priority, albeit Paul knew there were savings to be made. That’s why he turned to Lemerle for help….
“In 2016 I engaged Lemerle to audit the gas and electric supplies to our practices in Henley and Reading. The service was free-of-charge, and Lemerle reported back to us detailing the existing contractual position along with a plan for saving on future supplies.
Lemerle assumed responsibility for the management of our supply contracts, issuing timely terminations and dealing with contractual issues as they presented themselves, whilst always keeping us informed. They negotiated new supply contracts, offering us various suppliers and contract Iengths and the best available prices. I would never have had the time to explore all of this myself! It was such a weight off my mind to have someone else managing these things, leaving me more time to focus on delivering excellent care and managing my team.
Lemerle continues to manage our utility supplies, and I would recommend them to any of my dentistry colleagues. Their support has played a vital part in helping us to manage the business efficiently.”
