To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) new general dental services contracts and (b) new personal dental services agreements which have been offered to dentists have been (i) signed and (ii) rejected in (A) each primary care trust and (B) England; and what percentage of the previous NHS dentistry service level is now offered in (1) each primary care trust and (2) England.
Data on provisional management estimates on the number of signed and rejected contracts which also set out the estimated level of national health service services associated with accepted contracts compared with that of rejected contracts, based on weighted courses of treatment or units of dental activity have been placed in the Library.
A contract may be for either a practice or an individual dentist.
Primary care trusts are using the funding associated with rejected contracts to commission additional services from other dentists.
