Dental HEAT Target
ISD has supported NHS boards in relation to HEAT target H9 ("At least 60% of 3- and 4-year-old children in each SIMD quintile to receive at least two applications of fluoride varnish per year by March 2014") via comprehensive management and provision of data until 2014. The data was published under Scotland Performs.
Each issue of data was uploaded by ISD into the HEAT dashboard according to a quarterly timetable (which commenced in November 2010 and followed the pattern February >> May >> August >> November) until 31 March 2014. ISD published an annual Fluoride Varnishing report in January 2015 detailing data to 31 March 2014.
