Morgannwg Local Dental Committee represents subscibing General Dental Practitioners who have General Dental Services (GDS) or Personal Dental Services (PDS) NHS contracts with the Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea localities of the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

Welcome

The Local Dental Committee (LDC) is a Statutory Committee that must be consulted by its corresponding Health Body on matters relating to NHS General Dental Practitioners, such matters being contractual matters, disciplinary matters and commissioning matters. The Local Dental Committee also collaborates with the corresponding Health Body on matters relating to the provision of General Dental Practitioner Services through a Liaison Group consisting of LDC and Health Board officials, and which meets every two months, and a Strategic Planning Group which has various sub-committees, all of which have LDC representation.

From the Chair

Geographically Morgannwg LDC has a wide representation across South Wales and is one of the largest LDCs in Wales representing the interests of around 270 dentists working in the area. These dentists have practices ranging from multiple city surgeries to sole practitioners working in the valleys. This diversity of dental practices have different needs and concerns but underlying it all is the everyday business of dentistry.

LDC Funding

Morgannwg LDC is at present funded by a Statutory Levy, paid by subscribing practitioners on a monthly basis. The Levy is used to pay committee expenses such as meeting rooms, hire of equipment, reimbursement of loss of income for representatives on LDC duty, travelling expenses for representatives and other administrative expenses.
