Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 2929, tabled on 18 May 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many dental practices are registering new (a) adult and (b) child NHS patients.

Answered on

3 June 2021

This data is unavailable. Continuous registration with dental practices is no longer required and patients are only registered with a dental practice during the course of their treatment.

In circumstances where patients are unable to access an urgent dental appointment directly through a National Health Service dental practice, they should contact NHS 111.
