General description

The information presented here shows NHS activity by quarter.
Units of Dental Activity: This is the technical term used in the new NHS Dental Contract regulations to describe weighted claims for treatment. They refer to the whole claim, not just individual items. The list below shows the weighting for each of the treatment category bands and is used to calculate the treatment claims by band figures.

Band 1: 1.0
Band 2: 3.0
Band 3: 12.0
Band 1 urgent: 1.2
Arrest of bleeding: 1.2
Bridge repair: 1.2
Denture repair: 1.0
Prescription issue: 0.0
Removal of sutures: 1.0

A UDA of 0.75 for prescription issue was removed from 1 November 2012.


Data collection and calculation

The data is derived from dental activity forms submitted for payment and processed by NHS Business Services Authority Dental Services.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a significant impact on the way dental services have been provided in Wales and therefore affect the data collected from the last quarter of the financial year 2019-20 and the full financial year 2020-21 onwards.

From 1st April 2019 health service provision for residents of Bridgend local authority moved from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg to Cwm Taf. For more information see the joint statement from Cwm Taf and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Boards (see weblinks). The health board names have changed with Cwm Taf University Health Board becoming Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board becoming Swansea Bay University Health Board. A link to the statement from the minister for health and social service can be found in the weblinks section.
