The transitional managed clinical network has developed a new interactive referral form designed to ensure that orthodontic referrals are made in a timely and appropriate fashion. This is combined with a move to online only submission, in line with the commissioning guides and paperless NHS targets.
The new form contains links to evidence based guidance and will automatically send your referral to the most appropriate provider, be that primary or secondary care.
The following information is for dentists in the Cheshire and Mersey area:
