Dental system reform focus group - expression of interest

NHS England and NHS Improvement as part of their work for the next stage of dental system reform are seeking the views of the dental profession and commissioners. Their ambition is to engage with all disciplines within the team and have representation that reflects the diverse workforce within dentistry. Therefore, NHS would like to invite you to register your interest to join one of their focus groups.

The focus groups will provide a valuable platform for you to talk about your experience of the current contract and thoughts and suggestions for potential improvements. To note these groups will not focus on individual contracts nor are they negotiation meetings.

NHS recognises that you may identify as a DCP and/or business support, therefore please express an interest to the survey for the group most relevant to you.

If you would like to actively participate within a focus group, please complete the relevant expression of interest survey Dental care professionals or Business support including dental nurses have more interest than NHS is able to accommodate in the groups then this information will be used to ensure that the groups are diverse in terms of sex, age, ethnicity, contract size etc. Further information about dental system reform can be found here.

The survey will need to be completed in one sitting and will close at 23.59 Sunday 18 July 2021. We have included a pdf version of the survey.
