NHS Digital and NHSX are looking for your help

NHS Digital and NHSX are building on prior research about accessing clinical information to help identify what dental nurses need most from the digital tools and systems that they use on a day-to-day basis. We are looking to identify what information and data dentistry staff need in their daily tasks to carry out their role. Learnings from this research will inform future NHS service improvements.

How can you help?

We need your help to understand your experience of using digital tools and systems when working in the dentistry sector. We’re looking to speak with dentists, dental nurses and practice managers across NHS primary care dentistry in England. We are especially interested to speak with people who have not participated in research with the NHS in the past 6 months.

The overarching questions we’re exploring are:

  1. What broader challenges around digitisation in dentistry might affect the end-to-end clinician journey?
  2. What challenges might clinical and administrative staff face when using digital technology to share clinical information between different dentistry services?
  3. How will data and information need to be accessed and presented to clinicians and administrative staff in order to provide optimal care for patients?
  4. How might new technologies and services that are emerging in dentistry affect access to clinical information?

We’d like to invite you to share your thoughts and experience with us in a 60 minute video or phone call.

How can you get involved?

Firstly, please express your interest in helping us by taking 5 mins to fill out this short questionnaire. In the questionnaire, you’ll tell us about your availability, preferred interview times and role within primary care dentistry.
