Re: Oral health care provision in residential special educational settings – launch of dental project
The NHS Long Term Plan commits to improving the health care of children, young people and adults with a learning disability, autism or both. The Office of Chief Dental Officer, England, in collaboration with the NHS England and NHS Improvement Learning Disability & Autism programme, has embarked upon a 5-year project (2019-2024) with the intention of delivering upon this commitment. This oral health project forms part of a wider initiative, which includes audiology and optometry, aiming to improve provision of and access to health care for children and young people in residential special schools and colleges.
BSP President, Professor Nikos Donos, wishes everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year and is looking forward to the exciting year ahead.
