Dental Services – Lancashire Care NHS FT


Lancashire Care NHS FT dental services are divided into 2 distinct areas, private dental services and community dental services. These services share some service delivery locations and some staff resources though they perform distinctly different activities

The Challenge

    1. To rationalise the staff and locations throughout both services whilst achieving activity targets and reducing costs. The project needs to fully understand how their current workforce is contributing to activity and where waste can be removed to make it more efficient and effective. However; dental teams have interdependencies, i.e. dentists and dental therapists cannot affect activity without a dental nurse. The proportional relationships between team members are of primary importance in the redesign

Our Approach

The Outcome

Dental Services
Thanks for all your help and support I am confident WRaPT will be useful for the service once issues are resolved and whilst we cant use at present at least it has focused attention on some of the complexities and issues of the service.

Seeing the tool was most helpful and also enabled us to have an understanding of the tool and how it will work and possibly support us in the future. We are keen and willing to work with you in developing this.
