Essential training for commissioners of primary care dental services

PCC is running three dental primary care contracting essentials courses over the next year.

Our level one workshop enables delegates to develop a better understanding of the regulatory, financial and contractual framework under which NHS eye-health services are commissioned and provided and the practical implications of these. It will help delegates to feel confident in managing contract change requests, requesting contract changes themselves, implementing and managing national variations and issuing contract notices. This session is running on 15 November in Leeds and 23 January 2019 in London.

The level two workshop builds on the learning from level one and uses real work examples to take you through scenarios you are likely to face as contracting managers. It provides the opportunity for delegates to look at their own local scenarios and queries and promotes decision making. This session on 2 May in London is aimed at delegates with a basic understanding or above of the GDS and PDS arrangements.

The level three session allows delegates to work through two local scenarios, understanding the contractual issues, the options available and formulating contractual notices and practice difficult conversations. This workshop is on 19 July in London and 12 September in Leeds.
