    5 June 2018

    The second phase of testing a contract model for the delivery of NHS primary care general dental services that focuses on disease prevention and remunerates practices for the achievement of a combined activity and capitation measure is well underway. 

    The prototype system has been evaluated twice within this phase of testing and shared with the prototype practices and their commissioners at two series of engagement events held in London and Leeds.  The first events were held at the beginning of the 2017 calendar year and the second series took place last September.

  • Dental programme news

    17 May 2018

    The provider news round-up will be published on the last Thursday of every month and sent as an email to the contact address listed for the practice. The intention of the newsletter is to provide practices with a summary of the important communications that were sent out in the preceding weeks that require attention and or action and any other additional news items or general information pertinent to the prototype system. It is essential that as the contract holder, providers have sight of all communications that are sent from the dental contract reform programme team as they are responsible for ensuring the service is delivered in accordance with the contractual arrangements underpinning the prototype system.

    Business managers can help by ensuring the news round-up is passed to the provider if it does not go directly to their email address. Also, hyperlinks to the last six editions of the newsletter are below allowing any of these publications to be downloaded and printed from this webpage. If a copy of a previous edition is required, please send a request by email to the DCR inbox; dentalcontractreform@pcc.nhs.uk
