The Department of Health and Social Care has proclaimed that there will be no increase in NHS dental patient charges in England from 1 April. Likewise, Colette Bridgman, the Chief Dental Officer, Wales, confirmed the same for the Welsh profession.
“There will be no increase in NHS patient charges in England from 1 April.“
This follows the earlier announcement in November that NHS patient fees will increase by five per cent. The increase was delayed in April due to the pandemic.
