Leading dentists have called for health officials take back some of the responsibilities currently provided by outsourcing firm Capita.
Capita was commissioned to run NHS England’s Primary Care Support England service, which provides support services to NHS GP practices, pharmacies, dentists and opticians.
But the British Dental Association (BDA) said that hundreds of dentists have not been able to perform NHS work because of delays with the service.
It said NHS dentists have had to wait – in some cases for up to a year – to get their National Performer Number required to provide NHS services.
