Please find attached a final letter regarding your recent Freedom of
Information request.

 

We would also value your feedback regarding the way in which your request
was handled. You can provide us with direct feedback on our website at the
following web link:

Any feedback you provide will be strictly anonymous and much appreciated.

 

Summary of Response

 

1995 to 2007

 

I am writing to advise you that following a search of our paper and
electronic records, I have established that the information for 1995 to
2007 is not held by the NHS Business Services Authority. This is because
the NHSBSA only data for 2008/09 onwards.

 

2008/09 Onwards

 

See the attached information. For each question I have highlighted below
where you can locate the information requested within the attached
documents. Some of the information is not held. Where that is the case I
have indicated that below.

 

1. The total number of patients that were seen in the Practice.

 

Page 3 – ‘Patients treated (general)’ and ‘Patients treated (orthodontic).

 

2. The number of NHS patients that were seen in the Practice.

 

Page 3 – ‘Patients treated (general)’ and ‘Patients treated (orthodontic).

 

3. The NHS targets that the Practice had to meet under the relevant NHS
contract and data as to whether or not the targets were met.

 

Page 3 – Targets - ‘Contracted general activity (UDA)’ and ‘Contracted
orthodontic activity (UOA)’. Achieved – ‘General activity scheduled (UDA)’
and Orthodontic activity scheduled (UOA).

 

4. The UDA rates of the Practice.

 

Please see the attached spread sheet titled ‘UDA Rates’.

 

5. The total number of UDAs claimed by the Practice with (i) a breakdown

Page 3 – General Activity – Breakdown of Activity’.

 

7. The amounts paid by the NHS to the Practice with a breakdown of what
the payments related to.

 

Please see the attached spread sheet titled, “Payments spread sheet”.
Please note that some payments have been combined under “other payments”
and “other deductions”. The information held for these payments is at a
granularity which are personal to specific dentists, including things like
sickness pay. That level of information falls under the exemption in
section 40 subsections 2 and 3 (a) of the Freedom of Information Act. 
This is because it would breach the first data protection principle as:

a)  it is not fair to disclose ,a dentists’ personal details to the world
and is likely to cause damage or distress.

b) these details are not of sufficient interest to the public to warrant
an intrusion into the privacy of the dentist’s.

 

The attached annex A to this letter sets out the exemption in full.

 

8. The total number of check-ups carried out by the Practice.

 

Page 5 – ‘Examination – Number’
