FOR DENTAL PRACTICES, PHARMACIES, GP PRACTICES, HOSPITALS, HEALTH AND EARLY YEARS PROFESSIONALS
It is a real pleasure to launch “A Little Trip To The Dentist” in the East Midlands. Please find attached the toolkit. Following fantastic work carried out in the West Midlands and a successful launch there it has always been my intention to bring this excellent toolkit to the East Midlands. There is currently an evaluation of that launch with a proposed Midlands wide campaign a possibility for later this year. Alongside Public Health England colleagues we have been working with NHS England and NHS improvement team to bring this toolkit to you.
You can download the toolkit here
I realise this is somewhat delayed but there is a real opportunity to use the momentum already generated not push forward these important messages. The part that you are your teams play will make a massive difference to the health of the children and families in our region.
I hope that you will take this opportunity to support the messages over the next few months and whilst we have already had some local case studies specific to our area there is still time for any of you with stories that we can add to the ongoing campaign to do so.
For any queries please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to “putting the mouth back in the body” with you all and please do tag us @NHSMidlands
