The comments made by Humza Yousaf, the Scottish Health Minister, on 10 June 2021.
The remobilisation of the NHS is one of our number one priorities and the Scottish Government remains committed to ensuring that NHS dental services emerge from this pandemic well-placed to care for the oral health of the population.
This new funding is an important step in ensuring the continued remobilisation of NHS dental services and to ensure more patients can be seen safely. We will also continue to fund free PPE for the dental sector and, from July, we will increase it by up to 50 per cent.
We are continuing to work with the sector to provide much-needed support to fully remobilise dental services.
