PATIENTS who have been on a waiting list to access dental services in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire are being asked to get in touch after a number of new spaces became available.
Hywel Dda University Health Board has recently undertaken a commissioning exercise to increase the level of NHS dental services within the Health Board. As a result the health board has successfully awarded new contracts in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire to support those patients who have not previously been able to access NHS dental care.
The contracts have been issued in Pembrokeshire (Tenby), with increase capacity being placed in Milford Haven, Carmarthen, Llandovery and for the Llanelli/Burry Port area. Anyone who would like to access these services is asked to contact local practices directly.
Patients who are currently on the waiting list held by the dental services team for the Llanelli and Llandovery area will be contacted as appropriate.
Jill Paterson, Director of Primary Care, Community Care and Long Term Care, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer additional places at dental practices in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and I would encourage anyone who has been waiting to use these services to contact their local practice in the areas above.”
