• Special Care Dentistry (1)

            *The number in brackets indicates the number of days/weeks 

NHS England has established an MCN across various parts of NHS dentistry in the East of England region which links clinicians across all settings to provide patient-centred care throughout the clinical pathway, including improving clinical effectiveness, equity of access, efficiency and parity of outcome. These MCNs will be part of a wider team which will work under the guidance of the Regional Chief Dentist for the East of England. 

It will be the responsibility of the Chair of each MCN to oversee its functioning within the said Terms of Reference published by NHS England - East of England, which will require close communication with identified clinicians from all aspects of dentistry who have successfully applied and been appointed to the Network. The role of the MCNs, through the leadership of the Chairs will be to ensure high quality NHS patient care in an equitable manner across the country through close working with the Regional Chief Dentist.

MCN Chairs will be employed for tax and national insurance purposes (EFTP) by NHS England for up to a maximum of 2 Programmed Activities (PAs) per week (additional PAs may be required in the early stages to establish the MCN), i.e. £192.30 per session, amounting to a total annual sum of £20,000.00. We will consider joint applications for each 2 PA per week as well as individual applications. 

This is an excellent opportunity to further develop the work undertaken thus far and enhance the roles of each of the specialties. If you have the leadership and management skills which will help us to improve patient experience and dental care across all aspects of dentistry, please send an expression of interest (no longer than 500 words and specifying which MCN) along with your CV to by 12.00 Midnight 24th March 2024. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview by 29th March 2024.
