Unfortunately, the payment of arrears for backdated fee increases for dentists was not processed in this schedule month.
We realise that most dentists will have expected this to be paid, so are taking steps to make the arrears payment directly to bank accounts outwith the schedule, and account for it properly in next month’s eSchedule.
We will write to all dentists who are due to receive an arrears payment with more information on the amount of arrears payment which will be made.
When will payments be made?
This direct payment will be made to the same bank account nominated for your list number and we are endeavouring to have it into bank accounts on 20 December 2018.
If we cannot complete all the additional actions by then, then the payment may be made on 21 December instead.
We apologies for any inconvenience this will cause.
Having been unable to include in the schedule, we are doing our utmost to get this payment to you before Christmas.
