Local Dental Committees Guide to Urgent Dental Care Hub Referrals

  1. For every patient that contacts your practice you must complete this online NHS England Triage Document . This audits all calls to the practices and will help NHS England in the setting up of further UDCHs. Even if you only give advice this is an essential part of the process.
  2. Triage the patient making all the appropriate patient records. If you are doing this remotely without direct access to their records, it is strongly recommended you use this attached triage proforma, as it will justify your decision to  treat with advice, analgesics and possibly antibiotics or to refer on to the nearest Urgent Dental Care Hub (UDCH)
  3. As part of the triage process, Identify if the level of patient need ie P1/P2/P3. (Guidance can be found here, this should be printed for quick reference) The hubs are currently only accepting P1 and limited P2 cases.
  4. All practices should receive a referral pack from England.swdental@nhs.net in the next 24 hours. If you do not please contact that email address. For Gloucestershire we hope the hub will be ready to accept referrals from 14th April. Ideally referral ‘s should be via NHS.net accounts. If you do not have an NHS account, please call 03004216757.
  5. It is extremely important that all dentists appreciate that the hubs will become overrun very quickly if we do not follow the strict referral criteria. For the time being the hubs will only be seeing P1 and possibly some of the more severe P2 cases. (See Urgent Care Pathway Doc linked in the referral form for guidance).

FAQs

  1. Do I have to send the referral from an NHS email address? Yes, if you or your practice do not have one then phone the hub directly.
  2. Can private practices get an NHS email address? Yes. If you do not have an NHS.net email account please click here. NHS mail is available to private and NHS dentists.
  3. Where can I get an NHS email address if I have an NHS performer number?

Email helpdesk@nhs.net from the practice NHS email, stating you would like to have a new account set up in the name of .......

You will need to provide your mobile number and an alternative email address for you.
