NHS England partners HEE and PHE specialist societies and others who have. contributed to their development will need to respond in the implementation phase by. unlocking structural and cultural barriers to support transformational change in dental. service delivery, It s a future that will dissolve the artificial divide between primary dental care and. hospital specialists one that will free specialist expertise from outdated service. delivery and training models so all providers can work together to focus on patients. and their needs, These guides set out a framework and implementation and the pace of change will. vary across England This will be an iterative process therefore it will be necessary. to review and update these guides regularly However implementation will require. energy brave decisions and momentum together with a willingness to share good. practice innovation and learning as it emerges to accelerate the speed and impact. of change to improve patient care,2 Equality and Health Inequalities Statement. Promoting equality and addressing health inequalities are at the heart of NHS. England s values Throughout the development of the policies and processes cited in. this document we have, Given due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination harassment and. victimisation to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations between. people who share a relevant protected characteristic as cited under the Equality Act. 2010 and those who do not share it and, Given regard to the need to reduce inequalities between patients in access to. and outcomes from healthcare services and to ensure services are provided in an. integrated way where this might reduce health inequalities. 3 Executive Summary, It is now widely recognised that the NHS needs transformational change to services. in order to deliver better outcomes for patients and to ensure that we commission. effectively, Progress has been made in improving oral health and access to services in general. However inequality in oral health experience and inequity in access to primary and. specialist care exists These guides focus on the commissioning and delivery of. specialist care pathways however the gateway to specialist care relies on access to. efficient and effective primary dental care services Whilst there has been some. improvement in general access over the past few years commissioners need to. ensure that they continue to meet their duties to commission primary care services. appropriate to the needs of their populations This mean making effective use of. available resources by challenging primary care providers to deliver care to those. who need it most and by adopting appropriate recall intervals for those who can be. seen less frequently freeing capacity for access by new patients Achieving. improvements in access to primary care will widen access to specialist care for those. who need it, NHS England has developed these guides for commissioning dental specialties to be. used by commissioners to offer a consistent and coherent approach They describe. the direction required to commission dental specialist services This will reflect the. need and complexity of patient care and competency of the clinician required to. deliver the clinical intervention rather than the setting within which the care is. delivered Care will be delivered via a pathway approach which will provide clarity. and consistency for patients the profession and commissioners There will be. nationally agreed minimum specifications for each service including how quality and. outcomes are to be measured which can be enhanced locally. They will ensure there is national consistency in the NHS commissioning offer for. dental specialist services and how they are delivered The pathway will also provide. consistency across England in agreeing at a national level as much of the detail. around commissioning such as referral criteria core data set required on referral. quality of environment and equipment contractual frameworks etc as well as. consistent measures of quality and outcomes The frameworks describe the concept. of clinical engagement and leadership through Managed Clinical Networks MCNs. which will work closely with commissioners Dental Local Professional Networks. LPNs and describe and monitor the patient journey from primary to specialist care. The first phase of this work during 14 15 has included developing frameworks for the. following specialties Orthodontics Special Care Dentistry Oral Surgery Oral. Medicine and Restorative dentistry Further work on restorative mono specialties. Paediatric Dentistry and Supporting Specialties Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology. Oral Microbiology and Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology will follow. NHS England is committed to working and engaging with patients carers and the. public in a wide range of ways Throughout this process we have ensured that. people s views are heard through having patient representatives on every group and. by convening a patient review group who have helped us develop the content This is. outlined in detail in the patient engagement and stakeholder engagement. appendices, Moreover it must be understood that ultimately it is the patient who should make the. decision about what treatment if any to undergo The practitioner s role is to advise. on treatments and options and benefits and risks This discussion between patient. and practitioner should form the beginning of every patient journey and every. specialist care pathway That includes patient consent to the information sharing. needed for their journey along a pathway, The process of developing these patient involvement frameworks has also included. engagement with every stakeholder group that has an interest in dentistry as. outlined in the acknowledgments stakeholder engagement appendix and. governance model in the appendices, This is the beginning of a process Locally commissioners need to undertake work. to understand the specialist services that are currently being provided by who and. where The quality and quantity of those services together with the impact and cost. also need to be identified before any change or procurement takes place Many. commissioners and clinician have already made progress on aspects of this. approach locally However they need to measure themselves against enablers. within each of the guides to understand what needs to happen next and agree local. priorities Commissioners will need support to identify current dental resources so. decisions can be made to ensure flexibility For example establishing MCNs may. require investment or flexibility in contracting such as the use of Commissioning for. Quality and Innovation Payments CQUIN The work of developing the. commissioning guides has identified a number of examples of innovative solutions. and exploiting flexibility in current contracting forms Locally commissioners will. need to consider investment and contractual flexibility to support the implementation. of new care pathways The implementation of care pathways could deliver efficiency. gains in some areas however there may be a need to consider the use of these. savings as investment to pump prime change in other areas of dentistry The next. phase of this work could support the validation and sharing of solutions to harness. and communicate examples of good practice and innovation Some of the identified. enablers will be more difficult to implement at a local level however nationally NHS. England could support identified enablers to become a reality An example would be. expanding the use of the NHS number within dentistry. There will be a particular emphasis on helping commissioners understand the. financial impact of implementing the commissioning guides by providing an estimate. for the associated upfront costs along with any expected financial savings to the. NHS The initial work will involve needs assessment understanding current. provision enabling consistent data collection and coding Implementation support will. also include the development of a commissioning pack to encourage effective and. consistent commissioning to benefit patients Work on an additional set of guides will. also take place during this phase focusing on Paediatrics the Supporting Specialties. Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology Oral Microbiology Oral and Maxillofacial.
