With the ever-increasing pressures placed upon our health and social care systems, any interventions made need to improve outcomes, increase safety and/or provide better value. The ideal scenario is all three are achieved by implementing the intervention. This report has been conducted to understand the impact achieved through the Mouth Care Matters programme. It also looks at the return on investment and opportunity for wider roll out. The focus for the report is on the acute area of the programme.
