NHS announce new provider for Orthodontics in Calderdale from April 2020
A new Orthodontic service provider has been confirmed for Calderdale.
Saltaire Orthodontics will take over the NHS orthodontic contract from April 1 2020.
The Dental Commissioning Team at NHS England & NHS Improvement (North East & Yorkshire) say the new provider will operate at a practice address at 8-10 Crossley Street, Halifax.
In a statement they say: “…where existing orthodontic providers have not been awarded a new NHS contract (either because they chose not to bid or submitted a bid but were unsuccessful), they were given the opportunity to complete care for the patients currently under treatment.
“I can now confirm that all patients in treatment will remain with their existing provider to complete treatment.
“Patients who have already been assessed and are waiting for NHS orthodontic treatment will be transferred to the new provider.”
The current provider for Calderdale is Only Orthodontics which is based in Huddersfield. That contract ends when the new one begins in April.
Saltaire Orthodontics will also operate at 84 New North Road, Huddersfield, HD1 5NE for Huddersfield patients.
For North Kirklees, Saltaire Orthodontics will operate at 215-217 Bradford Road, Dewsbury, WF13 2HD. The Dental Commissioning Team say all patients in treatment there will transfer to the new NHS orthodontic provider in addition to the waiting list.
