GIRFT Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery - Lab Questionnaire

Closed 15 Sep 2023

Opened 8 Jun 2023


The information entered into this questionnaire will serve as a follow-up to the information provided from the first round of Oral and Maxillofacial (OMFS) deep dives to fully map OMFS laboratories across the country and the services provided.  Some of the questions will be about clinical data so it would be useful to have this to hand as you fill in the questionnaire. Please only include NHS data (not private).
