The Dennis Lancet was a lightweight underfloor-engined chassis manufactured by Dennis during the 1980s.
The Lancet nameplate was previously carried by a front-engined chassis, and later, in the 1950s and early 1960s, to the underfloor-engined Lancet UF.
At a time before the advent of low floor buses, when wheelchair access required the fitment of a chairlift, a few bus operators and councils bought Dennis Lancets with this feature. Leicester Citybus and West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive had three and two respectively with Duple Dominant Bus bodywork.
Other UK customers for the Lancet included Tillingbourne Bus Company, Merseyside PTE (with ten, the largest British fleet), Northern Scottish, Blackpool Transport, Portsmouth, Merthyr Tydfil and Taff-Ely.
