Need a Dentist

The NHS in Mid Essex has an urgent NHS dental service. Contact 111 or NHS Choices.

Whitley House Policy is that:

All patients with a recognised dental problem should not be given a GP clinic ot telephone appointment but should contact their own dentist or the urgent NHS dentist.

If there is something the dentist cannot prescribe the dentist must contact the GP directly. If there is uncertainty as to whether the patients problem is dental then they can see the GP to be assessed. However if the problem turns out to be dental, then as per the GMC recommendations, they will be directed to the dentist and not treated by the GP.

Dentists are obliged to issue NHS prescriptions to NHS patients where required. They also have a duty of care to issue private prescriptions to private patients.
