The Standing Dental Advisory Committee has no premises.

The OME’s office premises are the responsibility of the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.

No premises are shared between the other organisations listed. It is not possible to determine whether offices for the remaining organisations are shared with other publicly funded bodies as this information is not held centrally in the Department.

Available figures for the 12-month rental costs for offices for each organisation is as follows:


(a) Monitor


(b) Standing Dental Advisory Committee


(c) Doctors and Dentists Review Body


(d) NHS Litigation Authority
