Dental Services: Yorkshire and the Humber

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the financial allocation for dentistry is in financial year 2008-09 in each primary care trust area in Yorkshire and the Humber; and if he will make a statement. (244123)

The primary dental service funding allocations for 2008-09 made to each primary care trust (PCT) in the area of the Yorkshire and the Humber strategic health authority are set out in the following table. These are net of income from dental charges paid by patients, which are retained locally to supplement the resources available for dentistry. Actual expenditure levels are determined by the pattern and type of services commissioned by each PCT. PCTs may also dedicate some of their other national health service resources to dentistry if they consider this an appropriate local priority.
