NHS Scotland Dental Practice Inspections  to 31st December 2014

NB: For those practices undergoing inspection up to 31 December 2014,

  • Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs), item no 34 on the current CPI Checklist dated 21 Nov 2012, should be considered an essential (rather than a best practice) item.
  • The CPI Checklist which comes into effect on 1 January 2015 lists an AED as essential.

The  new Combined Practice Inspection (CPI) Checklist came into force on the 1st January 2013.

The CPI Checklist provided here (dated 21 Nov 2012) should be considered to be the version for use in inspections from 1 January 2013.  This document replaces earlier draft documents.

In addition a separate document for the individual surgeries section of the CPI Checklist ('Part 4 Individual Surgeries') is available this can printed off as many times as required for the number of surgeries within a practice. 

NB:- A revised CPI checklist  document comes into force on the 1st January 2015 - For information on the new document please follow this link
