Your GP has little experience in dealing with dental problems. You should always consult a qualified dentist for ALL dental problems. If you do not have a NHS Dentist the PCT can assist you in finding one..

In an emergency, an evening, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday service is available 365 days per year. Please call 0845 056 8298

telephoneMany health issues can often be dealt with on the telephone rather than you having to attend the surgery. If you feel that a telephone consultation would be sufficient please let the receptionist know and a GP will call you back that day. Please ensure you provide a telephone number which you will be contactable on to the surgery. If you wish a particular doctor to call you back we can not always guarantee this will be on the same day.
