Do you or someone you care for use NHS special care dental services in the South West?

If you or someone you care for or support use special care dental services in the South West then NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE and NHSI) would like to hear from you. The views of patients, potential patients, parents, carers and advocates will be collated and help shape future developments of special care dental services in the region.

Special care dental services focus on improving the oral health of people who have a health condition or have circumstances which prevents them from using a high street dentist. It is these people that the NHS would like feedback from about their awareness and experience of using these services.

NHSE and NHSI are working in partnership with Heathwatches to run focus groups and ‘speak up’ groups which aim to capture the views of those using the services or are eligible to do so. You can also get involved by completing the survey on NHS England’s website Citizen Space.

The engagement work begins on 27 August 2019 and will run until 4 October 2019. On completion of the engagement, NHSE and NHSI will analyse the feedback, publish the findings and explain the next steps.
