FOI 27745


I have previously been supplied the following data (FOI Request Final Response 27665): ‘Broken down by region, please provide data on the number of Units of Dental Activity (UDAs) delivered by each individual dentist delivering NHS general dental services in England for 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20, 2021/21 and 2021/22. If a given name is not attributable for each provider, please provide a unique identifier, that may enable comparison across years. This request recognises that some dentists may perform NHS activity in multiple regions in a single financial year.’ I am requesting the same data in the same format for 2006-7, 2007-8, 2008/9, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2014/15.



I am writing to advise you that following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established that the information you requested is not held by the NHS Business Services Authority.

Unfortunately, due to data retention regulations we only hold data as far back as 2014/2015.


A copy of the information is attached. The data we have provided shows the performers who have submitted UDA claims. Please read the below notes to ensure correct understanding of the data.
