Current direction of the New Primary Care (General) Dental Contract
The Department has been developing new Primary Care dental contract models for Northern Ireland and has been in negotiation with the British Dental Association since 2006.
The present proposal is for a capitation-based contract model.
This is offered to update the profession, especially as the HSCB is proposing to pilot a capitation-based model in the future.
General Practitioners will receive information on these pilots from various organisations and we will provide updates on this page as further information becomes available.
