UNISON wins dental nurse fee deal

 UNISON achieved a major breakthrough in its campaign to win registration payments for all dental nurses when NHS Direct agreed to pay Band 4 dental nurses £38 towards the cost of their £96 annual registration fee to the General Dental Council.

The deal brings such nurses in line with the arrangements put in place for dental nurses on Band 5 or above through the multi-year pay deal, which was agreed following a ballot of members in 2008.

UNISON will be looking to build on this agreement with NHS Direct by pursuing payment of professional clinical registration allowances for the entire dental nurse workforce across the health service through negotiations at the NHS Staff Council.
