How dental practices will test whole versions of a possible new system in a stage called 'prototyping'
Prototyping is the next step in the reform of primary care dentistry. Following the initial pilot scheme, a prototype of a possible new system is to be trialled in selected dental practices.
The ‘Dental contract reform: prototypes’ document provides information on:
- the background to the reform
- lessons learnt from current pilot practices
- proposals for prototyping
- how dental practices can apply to be a prototype.
This follows an engagement exercise on reforming dental contracts - see response to the consultation exercise.
Prototyping will start from the autumn of 2015.
Dental practices can apply to become a prototype on the Primary Care Commissioning website.
