SHDRG Terms of Reference/Membership
During the last round of BDA Triennial Elections, there were not enough nominations for the Scottish Committee for Hospital Dental Services to continue and the Scottish Hospital Dental Reference Group was established. The Group will provide a channel of communication between hospital dental staff and those who negotiate their terms and conditions of service.
They will advise NHS Boards and the Scottish Government when required on matters relating to the provision of hospital dental services in Scotland.
The Group will also liaise with, and send representatives to the Central Committee for Hospital Dental Services and the Scottish Council of the British Dental Association.
