Department of Health and Social Care

NHS England advises it expects information on the number of dental practices in each of the 13 Starting Well areas that will be involved in the programme to be available later in the spring. The first contracts were signed at the start of this month and therefore no children have yet benefited from the programme. Contracts will continue to be signed over the next few months. Information on the total number of practices involved broken down by each of the 13 areas involved in the programme will be available once contracts are signed.
