Healthwatch Redbridge calls for better local NHS dental services


Healthwatch Redbridge is calling for better NHS dental services in the borough following the publication of their findings from a survey on dental care.

“In some cases, patients were told they would have to wait more than three months for an emergency dental appointment,” said a spokesperson. NHS dental costs were also cited as confusing. ”Some patients told us they were unaware they were being treated as a private patient, ending up with expensive treatment costs.”
