 50p Rise in Basic NHS Dental Treatment on the Anvil

The British government has announced a hike in the NHS dental costs starting from April 1 with the cost of a basic dental treatment rising by 50p to £17.50.

The cost for NHS prescriptions has also risen by 25p to £7.65 while complex dental treatments may rise by £5. However the costs for annual prescription payment certificate (PPC) and quarterly PPCs remain the same at £104 and £29.10 respectively.

Health Minister Simon Burns said that dental charges were a major portion of the overall costs of dental services and said that the changes will be put in front of the Parliament soon. "Dental charges represent an important contribution to the overall cost of dental services. The exact amount raised will be dependent upon the level and type of primary care trusts and the proportion of charge-paying patients who attend dentists and the level of treatment they require", he said.
