Volume 684: debated on Monday 10 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What analysis the Dental Business Service has made of items prescribed under band 3 of the new dental contract since 1 April.[HL6411]

The Business Services Authority dental practice division provides primary care trusts with monthly returns on activity. Once sufficient treatments have been completed we will be able to assess activity. However, it will be some months before this is the case, particularly in the case of the more complex band 3 treatments.
