Guidance Notes

This report contains the details from FP17s processed for the period stated 2022/2023. The information within the report includes the data items and descriptions listed below.

Commissioner Code: This is the 3 character code associated with the Commissioning Organisation. This a generic term used to denote health bodies, either Area Teams in England or Health Boards in Wales. Also known as Primary Care Organisations (PCOs)

Contract Number: This is a unique 10 character number which identifies a contract.

Provider Name: The name of the provider

Contract Type: Either GDS – General Dental Services, PDS – Personal Dental Services or PDS Plus – Personal Dental Services Plus

Financial Year: The financial year associated with the 'Year Month' dimension in the format 'YYYY/YYYY' e.g. 2018/2019 for 201804.

Principal Practice Address Postcode: This is address line 3 of the main address used for correspondence between the NHSBSA and the dental contract, it is not necessarily the address where treatment takes place. The Principal Practice and Correspondence address is calculated based upon a number of rules applied in sequence:

  1. If there is only one treatment location recorded in CoMPASS, then this will be assigned as the PP&C address.

  2. If at the 30th of the month there is only one live treatment location, then this will be assigned as the PP&C address.

  3. If there are multiple open treatment locations for the contract, the treatment location with the earliest submission of FP17/O activity will be used.

  4. If there are no open treatment locations at the 30th of the month, the historic principal practice address from POL will be used.

  5. If there are no open treatment locations at the 30th of the month, the address with the most FP17/O activity will be used.

  6. If there are no open treatment locations but one existed and had associated FP17/O activity when the contract was live, then this address will be used.

  7. Contracts that have an end date before 01/04/2013 are assigned a address.

  8. For a new contract where no treatment location addresses have been entered onto CoMPASS, they are assigned a blank address.

  9. If there are no FP17/O records after April 2013, the location with the most FP17/Os with no time restrictions is used.

  10. Contracts that have no FP17 records are assigned a blank address.

UDA Performance Target: The contracted units of dental activity to be achieved for the year, as entered on CoMPASS by the PCO.

UDA Financial Value: The financial value associated with the UDA performance target for the financial year, as entered on CoMPASS by the PCO.

Cost per UDA: This shows the cost per unit of dental activity at the contract. This is calculated by dividing the UDA Financial Value by the UDA Performance Target.

UDA Delivered - Financial Year to Date: Exclude FD For England : The units of dental activity scheduled for the financial year to date for the period selected, relating to the financial year e.g. in December this will cover the scheduled months of April to December, excluding FD UDA for English contracts and including UDA for Welsh contracts.

Service Line Name: The service name/description as maintained by CoMPASS.

Paid by BSA: Y/N. Set to 'Y' where the Pilot tick box is ticked within CoMPASS. Therefore Not Paid by BSA are Trust Community Dental Contracts .
