About the Committee
The Central Committee for
Hospital Dental Services (CCHDS) is a craft committee of the BDA. It is
concerned with all matters that affect dental staff working in hospitals
on dental and medical terms and conditions. It advises the BDA and its
other committees on all matters relating to the provision, maintenance
and enhancement of efficient, effective and economical hospital dental
and dental public health services.
CCHDS has close links with the
British Medical Association (BMA), in particular the Central Consultants
Committee (CCC), The Staff, Associate Specialists and Specialty Doctors
Committee (SASC), Junior Doctors' Committee (JDC), and the Joint
Medical Consultative Council (JMCC).
The BMA also provides employment advice on
behalf of the BDA to members employed on hospital terms and conditions.
Committee consists of consultant members elected locally, staff and
associate specialist members elected nationally, trainee representatives
nominated by Specialist societies. A list of current members can be
found using the navigation to the left.
