Occupational Health

In April 2013, there was a change in the NHS commissioning structure and the funding for occupational health services for Manchester Dental staff ceased to exist as it was redistributed in the CCGs budget.

Occupational health was a vital tool in protecting ourselves and our staff in the event of any serious occurrence. Staff must now attend A & E if there is an adverse event with a risk of HIV transmission for highly active anti-retroviral therapy. We as an LDC are trying to get this service re-commissioned for the safety of dental staff.
