Dentistry: structured event reporting form (SERF) outcome

The purpose of the outcome form is to record what actions have been taken following the original event for which a SER form has been submitted.

This allows us to show what measures have been put in place to address or rectify the situation. It also allows us to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.

An outcome form should be completed for all Level 1, 2 or 3 professionalism or safeguarding incidents. See the full dental SERF guidelines for guidance on when and by whom the outcome form should be completed.

Please email the Designated Officer if there are any queries.
