Guidance

If you lock yourself out of the web form at any point please contact the Customer Services team, with your username, on nss.psddental@nhs.net or by telephone on 0131 275 6300.

Practice management system suppliers will often provide their own guidance which reflects the visual representation of their individual systems. We have provided some useful information in the form of practice management system guidance which can be applied irrespective of the system used.
