"Lack of dental services over the Christmas period"
Posted by Nony1982 (as ),
I was shocked and appalled at the lack of dental services available over the Christmas period. In fact there were NONE!
My husband was in a considerable amount of pain and desperatley needed to see a dentist on Christmas Day. Only for us to discover that there was NO dental provison open (even for emergencies) on Christmas Day!
Shame on you Worcestershire NHS Trust!
Between us we phoned every hospital between here and Manchester and down as far a Bristol in the hope that someone could help him - they couldn't.
Thankfully we managed to find a private dental surgery open on Boxing day, and tahnkfully my husband was seen and the abses and tooth were removed.
I was under the impression that you as an NHS Trsut had a duty of care to provide Heatlh Care services to members of the public 365 days a year? We certainly didn't expect a dentist to be open, but surely you should have had an emergency dentist on call?
Now here's the real shaming fact Worcestershire NHS Trust - our local Vet was on call!
