What does the Scottish Hospital Dentists Reference Group do?

Due to a lack of nominations received for seats on the BDA Scottish Committee for Hospital Dental Services in the 2017 triennial election process, the BDA has set up a Reference Group which will replace SCHDS for the foreseeable future. 
Group members will share attendance at BMA Scotland meetings and meetings of CCHDS.  Members will provide written reports which will be circulated to hospital dentists in Scotland and BDA Scottish Council about twice a year.
