Lack of NHS dentists forces patients to use A+E at the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust





DIFFICULTIES finding an NHS dentist “forced” 185 patients to use A&E at the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust last year, according to data highlighted by Stratford Labour Party.

In a statement this week Labour said 150 patients attended A&E in South Warwickshire during 2022/23 with a dental abscess, caused by tooth decay, and 35 with dental caries (dental cavities).

Across the country last year 67,000 patients attended emergency departments with tooth decay.
