Class 2: What We Spend and How We Spend It

 

We have information about:

 

  • The cost of NHS treatment
  • Entitlement to exemption and remission from NHS dental charges
  • Our private charges

 

Our income from NHS work derives from individual courses of treatment and is dependent on our meeting our contracted Units of Dental Activity (UDA) that has been agreed with the NHS Area Team. In the event of underperformance we have to repay funds to NHS England, but in the event of overperformance there is no additional funding currently available from NHS England. In this case if our UDA quota has been used up for the current financial year, then you may need to have your care deferred to the following financial year. We make every effort to avoid this happening by spreading our UDA quota evenly throughout the year.

 

Information on NHS funding and contract targets is available from the Practice Manager
