Document Why do NHS Dental Services carry out monitoring and risk management activities?

The NHS Dental Services has a risk-based approach for all monitoring activities. Hence, routine activity that identifies any risks or anomalies will trigger further targeted activity. Developments in the risk management services are evolving as the Dental Reference Service review continues: clinical monitoring forms an essential part of the NHS Dental Services' risk management activity.

The routine activities listed below form the core of the non-clinical monitoring:
  • Contract Monitoring
     
  • Exception Reports

  • Patient Questionnaires

  • Benefit Eligibility Checks

  • Orthodontic Completion Treatment Monitoring
Further information can be viewed on the NHS Dental Services website.
