Changes to FP17s from 1 April 2022

As a reminder, from 1 April 2022, stricter validation rules will come into effect for FP17s.

As part of these rules, the Clinical Data Set (CDS) items reported need to match the treatment band claimed. Details of which treatment band is allocated to each CDS item can be found in 'CDS Items Treatment Bands - England' guide, under the Dental forms heading on our website.

Initially, any submissions which fail validation on the CDS will not generate an error code. Instead, a comment code will be added to your schedules (summary of forms), to advise that the information is incorrect:
Comment code Description

011 No treatment to justify band
012 Treatment entered higher than band
013 Reg 11 claim without appliance
014 Free Repair without repair/replaceable item
