The public’s experience of NHS dentistry in West Yorkshire
Over the last 10 years, Healthwatch across West Yorkshire (including Craven in North Yorkshire) have worked hard to alert NHS providers and commissioners to the significant gaps in dentistry services. In this report we’ve included a timeline summarising the work delivered around NHS dentistry by Healthwatch, in which you can see that we have repeatedly raised our concerns to various partners involved in the delivery and commissioning of NHS dental services. Our most significant successes have been working with local MPs to increase the number of units of dental activity commissioned areas of the region on a temporary basis. In this report you’ll find more information on impact our work has had as well as
• Key issues
• How we’ve tried to address these issues
• Changes we’d like to see
