To ask the Secretary of State for Health, for how many NHS dental contracts in England were not all contracted units of dental activity delivered in each year from 2012 to 2017.
Answer (Steve Brine)
The table below shows:
- the contracted units of dental activity not delivered through National Health Service dental contracts;
- total value of under delivered contracted units of dental activity; and
- number of contracts where not all contracted units of dental activity were delivered in England, for each year from 2012/13- 2016/17.
- Contracted units of dental activity not delivered through NHS dental contracts does not assume that up to 4% of under delivery is carried forward by the contractor, for delivery in the subsequent year (up to 4% under delivery is a contractual tolerance managed by commissioners).
