TeamTalk is database software that is used in all maxillofacial units in South Wales. It has two main functions:

1. As the primary tool for communication and handover between members of the maxillofacial team and the GP.

2. For data gathering for the purpose of service evaluation, audit and research.

In all units it is connected to the hospital patient management systems from which it draws demographics and other administrative data.

Because the software was and continues to be developed “in house” it remains flexible to the needs of each unit. If you have any particular requirements for data collection or development then this website is a useful forum to discuss them.

In 2007 NICE endorsed these techniques in the management of salivary gland problems. The maxillofacial department in the Royal Gwent Hospital have moved to be the first in Wales to pioneer these techniques and offer this service to our patients. Mr Simon ...
