Practice Inspection Booklet

When evaluating compliance with Clinical Governance, our Clinical Advisers use the NHSBSA Dental Services practice inspection booklet template (PDF: 259KB). This ensures a consistent approach to practice inspections.

You can use the template during training or as a guide for upcoming inspections.
