My Dentist has given back the contract for General Dental Services in Builth Wells
This has come as a real blow to the community, although in recent months the capability of My Dentist to provide an adequate service has not been as good as we would like, as a lot of constituents have told us they have been experiencing difficulties.
I have met with the Dental Director and the Head of Primary Care at Powys teaching Health Board. They explained to me that they have written a paper that considers a number of options. I would like to take this opportunity to express my preference for the Health Board providing general dental services at Glan Irfon in Builth Wells by employing a salaried dentist. I believe that this option gives us the best option of providing long term sustainable dental services for local people.
I am aware of at least one dentist who expressed an interest to me in taking up such a position, so I do believe that the salaried option is a viable one.
SIGN OUR PETITION and call for action to protect and enhance Builth Wells dental service provision.
We the undersigned call upon Powys teaching Health Board to take immediate action to secure a new and improved NHS dental services in Builth Wells.
