Our MP Greg Knight has raised the problem of lack of NHS dental care in Bridlington where an increasing number of residents are finding it not just difficult to access NHS dental care, but impossible to do so. Recently, a dental practice in the town has closed.
Under-Secretary of State for Health and social care Neil O’Brien has agreed to meet our MP to discuss the matter adding…
As well as making it more attractive to practise in the NHSthe number of dental school places is up from 810 in 2019 to 970 in 2021, making it easier for qualified dentists to come to the UK. We are putting through secondary legislation on that and encouraging new centres for dental development.
Earlier this year Sir Greg said that the NHS were trying to attract new NHS dental services to Pocklington. Nothing has happened thus far.
