Constituents across Great Yarmouth have contacted me with examples of how they have faced difficulties accessing dental treatment, either as an NHS or private patient.
Over the last year, I’ve asked numerous Parliamentary questions to highlight the current situation in both Great Yarmouth and across Norfolk. Despite additional Government funding to assist dental practices to recover from the Covid pandemic and treat more patients, there seems to be no marked improvement in services.
I am working with fellow MPs across Norfolk and local Conservative councillors to press NHS leaders to improve local dental services and increase access to treatment. NHS chiefs must provide additional resources in the Great Yarmouth area.
Please take a few short moments to answer the questions in this survey, so I can demonstrate to the NHS and to government ministers the scale of the problem in our area.
