New Round of L2 MOS accreditation due 28 May

11 April 2021

 

Dear All

Norfolk LDC would like to highlight this request by the Managed Clinical Networks for more practitioners in the county to apply for Level 2 Accreditation.   

The more practitioners with this accreditation the better the service available for practitioners and patients.

 

Rounds of accreditation take place regularly to add to the pool of level 2 competent oral surgeons. Some of you may have applied before and been turned down due to a lack of experiences experience, or incomplete evidence portfolios.   

This new round of accreditation will allow you to re apply if you have gained that additional experience and improved your portfolio. 

 

Good luck with your application.

Jason Stokes
