Scotland: New BDA Fees Guide for GDP Pay Uplift

14 December 2021

On 1 December the Scottish Government applied a 3% pay uplift for GDPs. This was the amount recommended in the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review Body (DDRB) report for 2021/2022 and will be backdated to 1 April. 

To reflect this change, we have updated our Fees Guide. This is a comprehensive document to assist practices, summarising the most frequently used codes and charges listed within the Statement of Dental Remuneration (SDR).
We have expressed our disappointment that the uplift has not been applied to all allowances. Consequently, we have estimated the true increase is between 2.2-2.3% for GDPs, rather than the full 3%.
We will raise these concerns with the Scottish Government and will detail it within our evidence for the 2022/2023 DDRB submission.
