Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations further amend the National Health Service (General Dental Services) Regulations 1992 (S.I.1992/661) (“the principal Regulations”) which regulate the terms upon which general dental services are provided under the National Health Service Act 1977.

Regulation 2 of the principal Regulations is amended to add a definition of “local health board” and contains provisions so that references to “FHSA” and “Health Authority” are treated as references to a local health board.

These Regulations amend regulation 19(1) of the principal Regulations so that two new determinations, XI and XII, are added to the table listing the determinations. The subject matter of determination XI is “Paternity Payments” and of determination XII is “Adoptive Leave Payments”.

They also amend Schedule 4 to the principal Regulations to increase (from £375 to £390) the amount specified therein as the maximum cost, or likely cost, of care and treatment which a dentist may undertake without seeking the prior approval of the Dental Practice Board.
