Scotland: Accessible information for maternity leave payments

Dentists told us that more accessible information on maternity leave payment arrangements was needed, so we worked with Practitioner Services Division (PSD) to deliver just that.

We have helped develop PSD’s new FAQ on maternity leave payments for eligible dentists included in sub-part A of the first part of the health boards’ dental list. It explains how to claim maternity leave payments and provides current information.

 The FAQs cover several common queries, including how maternity payment is calculated, how superannuation payments are affected, and what correspondence will be provided about the amount and duration of any payments.

 Full details relating to maternity payments can be found in Determination V of the current Statement of Dental Remuneration.
