This is an alternative consideration for reviews stated in the Single Operating Model (SOM) 2019-21, which will support the move away from monitoring activity and, instead focus resource on high quality Oral Health Reviews for all patients with the delivery of evidence based dentistry in line with the aspirations outlined in The Oral Health and Dental Services Response to ‘A Healthier Wales’.
