This guidance is intended to support all provider organisations that are required through their NHS Standard Contracts1 (including independent sector providers, primary medical and primary dentistry contracts) to deliver the FFT. We hope commissioners will find it useful too.
It replaces all previous implementation guidance for the patient focused FFT, including the guidance specifically relating to GPs and dentists, and the supplementary guidance and advice published in relation to information governance, sensitive situations and contracting with a commercial supplier of FFT services.
