Dental Commissioning Statistics, England – December 2015

These statistics show the volume of units of dental activity (UDAs) commissioned by the 13 Regional Teams as at the end of each quarter, for the upcoming 12 months.

The figures are broken down into two groups:

  • UDAs commissioned where the dental service is being provided;
  • UDAs commissioned in contracts not yet delivering services (for example, UDAs in new contracts, where the contract has been signed but the dental activity has not yet started).

Key findings this quarter:

  • 88.8 million UDAs had been commissioned as at 31 December 2015.
  • This is a decrease of 128,000 (-0.1%) compared to UDAs commissioned the previous quarter, and 41,000 higher (0.05% increase) compared to the previous year.
  • UDAs commissioned but not yet delivering services represent 0.03% (25,000) of all UDAs commissioned this quarter.
