PE1809/A: Scottish Government submission of 1 July 2020 (61KB pdf)



Do you agree that the consequences of the Scottish Government action, without any consultation or notice, leaves dental practitioners in a detrimental financial situation?

Do you agree with Practitioner Services Division that the CPDA is an allowance payment and not related to the sustainability package announced by the Scottish Government?

Do you believe this action may damage the dental practitioner and NHS relationship?

I would be grateful if the CPDA costs are reinstated as this pays in part to some of the expensive good hands on course that we have to undertake to upskill ourselves.

We as dentists were doing all what we can since studying days , through training life and after graduation to keep the NHS standing upright but now we feel that there is no support to our career. We have the fear of unknown future and what other aspects that the NHS will withdraw its support from

This action is unacceptable. Does this mean GDp's can select which bits of the SDR we would like to abide by?!
