Government failing dentists1st May 2007
The British Dental Association (BDA) has said there are 1,200 less dentists providing NHS services than there were before the new dental contract was implemented a year ago.
According to BDA Chief Executive, Peter Ward, the new contract has done nothing to entice dentists to the NHS. In a letter to the prime minister Mr Ward calls for more to be done to make NHS care a viable option for dentists who still want to provide it. Mr Ward goes on to accuse the government of alienating dentists by creating a target-driven contract and failing to meet its own success criteria.
