July 2023: Dentistry national crisis continues, the latest advice for Reading locals
Access to NHS dental care continues to be a problem for people across the UK, including Reading locals.
Here at Healthwatch Reading, we continue to engage with NHS England - South East Dental and NHS Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care Board (BOB ICB).
BOB ICB has responsibility for planning and funding NHS services for local people across Berkshire West, which includes Reading locals. They have both provided the team with a dental care Q&A which features the latest dental information and advice, including (but not the whole list) where to go if you can't find a local NHS dentist and what to do if you need urgent dental treatment. You can download the Q&A below.
Click here to find out how your feedback is helping our national body, Healthwatch England, inform the UK Government to make a national change in NHS dentistry.
If you have any questions, need more information and advice on local dental care or want to share your experiences and views on the dental crisis, you can contact us by:
