In the case of the recent deployment of Polish dentists to support the NHS in Scotland, NHS boards were asked to indicate to the Executive the number of dentists which they could accommodate in their salaried service, provided they had the appropriate facilities and support staff. The Executive allocated dentists to NHS boards after these requests were submitted. The dentists were placed into NHS board areas that indicated that they could provide accommodation and support immediately, and that will continue to be the only requirement for placing the two further groups of Polish dentists who will become available later this year.
