Healthwatch Kirklees* is undertaking a survey to find out how many people in Kirklees have access to a regular dentist and to understand their experience of looking for an NHS dentist. They write:

We would like your support on our NHS Dentistry Campaign.
What’s the issue?
We regularly hear from patients in Kirklees that they are struggling to find an NHS dentist who is currently accepting NHS patients.

We’ve heard stories of people experiencing dental pain having to go to the Out-Of-Hours Emergency dentist and some have even had to go to the Accident and Emergency (A&E).

Feedback will help identify ways in which service availability, access and quality can potentially be improved.
We would be grateful if you could help us promote this survey by adding it onto your website, social media (twitter/facebook), newsletter or any other channels.
