Class 3: Financial Information
We have information about:

  • The cost of NHS treatment
  • Entitlement to exemption and remission from NHS dental charges
  • Our private charges

Our income from the NHS derives primarily from our NHS contracts. Our annual contract is paid across 12 monthly installments.  There are also some allowances for such things as continuing professional development and the level of our commitment to the NHS.

This income is utilised to pay for the running of the dental practice such as staff salaries, rent/rates, practice development funding, the purchase of equipment its maintenance and servicing, dental materials, dental laboratory fees, staff and training improvements and all other business expenses.

We will reply within 3 working days and, following investigation, we will be able to respond fully within 10 working days. Any complaints about this publication scheme or about any aspect of the services provided by our dentists and dental staff should be made under this complaints procedure.

Class 6: Practice Policies
We have policies and procedures which ensure that the practice operates in a safe and efficient manner. These include but are not restricted to:

  • Data protection

Class 7: This guide
This guide will be reviewed regularly and we will also keep the list of publication up to date.

From January 2005 we will be required by the Freedom of Information Act to respond to requests from the public to access recorded information that we hold. There are some exemptions to this right and it does not change the rights of our patients to have all of their personal information kept strictly confidential and available to them on request.

Cost of information
For the most part we will only charge you for copying onto media eg CD ROM or requests for multiple printouts. We will let you know the cost and charges in advance.
