Appointed as NICE Fellow 2021-2024
Unfortunately, the 2019 Care Quality Commission report: smiling matters, illustrated significant failings in oral health provision within care homes. This included more than half of homes having no policy to promote and protect people's oral health. The aim of Gerry's fellowship is to positively engage with residential care homes to raise awareness of our guideline on oral health for adults in care homes. He also wants to develop solutions to encourage implementation of the guideline across the sector.
