THE HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT LOCAL DENTAL COMMITTEE (LDC) Did you vote for a LDC member, did you put yourself forward for election? Probably not. Do you pay for the LDC? If you don’t directly the practice does as the statutory levy is taken from all nGDS contracts. (Those in nPDS practices are asked to contribute to the voluntary levy). So what is the LDC? There has to be an organisation that the PCT’s can communicate with about dental matters and this is one of the functions of the LDC. The LDC is also there to help local dentists. It may be about contract disputes or any number of other matters including performance issues. The full committee meets several times a year and the Executive more frequently, at the first part of these executive meetings representatives of the four PCT’s (Portsmouth, Southampton, Isle of Wight and Hampshire) are present. The LDC secretary, Keith Percival, spends on average more than half a working week each week on LDC matters and reports fully to the LDC and also to you through the LDC website. If you want to know more about the workings of the LDC there is a standing invitation to all contributors to attend meetings by contacting the secretary, so why not come along and find out just what the LDC is doing with your money in your name. Tony Lynn … Chairman.
