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 preceding 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).
Official statistics are produced impartially and free from political influence.
