Response from Helen Smith 2, Head of Healthcare, HMP Nottingham Offender Health, Nottingamshire Healthcare NHS trust

Many thanks for your feedback. I have discussed this with the dental provider who advises that they currently provide immediate care and continuing care that encompasses all items of NHS dental treatment that is on a par with community provision. If a treatment is deemed clinically necessary and in the patients best interests, it will be provided.
