Revised Scottish Dental Access Initiative

The Scottish Government

This letter advises NHS Boards of a further revision of the Scottish Dental Access Initiative (SDAI) capital scheme which will take effect from 1 December 2016.

From 1 December 2016 further revisions are being made to the SDAI capital scheme to reflect the continued improvements in access to general dental services (GDS) in most areas.

From 1 December 2016 offers of financial assistance, under the SDAI to establish new or expand or purchase existing NHS dental practices will be available only in the following designated areas where access to GDS availability is poor, i.e. in order to meet unmet patient demand:

  • Grantown, Invergordon, Nairn, and Wick within NHS Highland
  • NHS Shetland;
  • Isle of Lewis within NHS Western Isles.
