Social Change UK have been appointed by NHS Sandwell to increase the number of local people attending the dentist in Sandwell. A full scoping exercise is currently underway, including research and co-creation with local residents, to determine the best strategy.
In some areas of Sandwell the number of people attending the dentist is below the national average. Kelly Evans, Director at Social Change UK said: “We are looking forward to working with local people and local stakeholders to develop the right strategy for Sandwell. Improving oral health and access to dentistry in the UK remains a key NHS priority and we beleive we can help Sandwell to increase the number of people who regulary attend the dentist”
Social Change UK have also worked with Nottingham City PCT on oral health. See our Notingham City case study for further details
