Tynwald to consider price hikes in NHS dental treatment

Sat, 07 Mar 2015


Residents will pay more for NHS dental treatment if plans are approved by Tynwald.

From April 1, increases would span across all three bands of treatment - bringing the Island in line with changes made in England.

Plans would see examination, diagnosis, treatment, planning and maintenance rise by £2, other treatments may see a £5.90 hike and the provision of appliances could swell by £21.

It's the first time an increase in charges has been considered since 2010.
