Coronavirus (Covid-19) - Emergency Service Information

Government confirms face-to-face patient care can resume

 

The Government has given the green light for the restoration of routine care services in England.

 

NHS England and the Chief Dental Officer have now confirmed that practices can provide face-to-face patient care from 8th of June. Whilst this news is welcome, it will be a gradual reopening based on the availability and fitting of Personal Protective Equipment and in particular masks, as well as social distancing and appropriate cross-infection control measures to enable us to open safely. Dentists are keen to start providing care as soon as safely possible, but we will need everyone to be patient as practices get up and running. Re-opening will be a phased return to practice, so for the time being please continue to use our emergency service. 

 

At present, stringent measures have been imposed on dentists restricting the use of essential dental equipment. Any patient who feels the need to access the emergency service will be assessed by telephone and given advice. Anyone requiring more complex treatment may be referred to a specialised dental care site.

Please repeat your details twice and clearly on the answer phone and a dentist will call you back. Also leave a brief, clear description of your symptoms.
