‘Fast tracked’ Judicial Review approved
As the UK dental profession waits with baited breath to find out the outcome of the GDC council meeting on the ARF hike, the BDA has announced it’s application for a speeded up judicial review has been granted.
The review has been confirmed to take place at some point between 1 and 16 December 2014. The fast-tracked proceedings should enable resolution of the case before dentists are legally obliged to pay their 2015 ARF on 31 December 2014.
The decision on the level of ARF for next year is taking place today (30 October) with three proposals on the table:
Model 1 – Dentists £945, DCPs £128
Model 2 – Dentists £890, DCPs £116
Model 3 – Dentists £850, DCPs £111
Current – Dentists £576, DCPs £120
