NHS England (Cheshire & Mersey) led by their Local Dental Network have produced a new guide to referring oral cancers, talking to patients, and prevention. The guidance has been designed to help dentists in the Cheshire & Mersey region, but the advice, information and guidance are relevant to dentists across the UK.
Of particular value is the best practice flow chart and log, that helps referrers to follow the progress of an urgent referral and the stages that should be followed. You can download copies of the full guidance here, a copy of the referral template here, the very useful patient information sheet here and the flow chart and log here.
