Peer Review for the Dental Team: National Toolkit
The Shropshire and Staffordshire Local Dental Network are delighted to present the national peer review toolkit for the dental team. The purpose of this toolkit is to:
- Facilitate the establishment of peer review groups;
- Encourage participation of all dental professionals in peer review;
- Support group facilitators in conducting meetings appropriately;
- Provide the required documentation for creating a peer review group;
- Provide peer review groups with bespoke meeting templates for a range of dental subspecialties; and
- Set the minimum standards that would have to be met to enable payment of funds to peer review
We hope that this toolkit will serve as a useful guide for NHS and private dental practices, community dental services, secure settings, secondary care providers and any member of the dental team intending to start a peer review group.
