Dentistry news – Pay rise of 3.5% ‘will take its toll’ on dentistry
Dentistry news - Pay rise of 3.5% ‘will take its toll’
Some interesting dentistry news we wanted to share today. The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that dentists and doctors will receive a 3.5% pay rise.
The British Dental Association (BDA) has responded to its claim that a 3.5% rise is ‘affordable’ next year.
The BDA and the British Medical Association (BMA) recently called for sweeping reform of the pay review process.
The pair argued that ministers have routinely interfered in the Review Body for Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB) processes. This includes introducing public sector pay freezes and pay caps.
The Department for Health and Social Care said: ‘Through the current financial settlement provided by HM Treasury to the department and reprioritisation decisions, funding is available for pay awards up to 3.5%.’
