DHSC plans to increase access to dental service

Thu, 20 Jul 2017

The Health Minister says there are plans to increase access to the NHS dental service on the Island.

The Department of Health and Social Care has just finalised a new five-year strategy for the Island's dental public health.

Kate Beecroft revealed at this month's sitting of Tynwald that her Department is looking at ways to increase capacity for NHS dentists.

The Minister also conceded that the DHSC needs proper targets that can be measured, after admitting it was impossible to judge how many of the 10 aims of the previous five-year plan had been met.
