My parents had a letter today from the Regency dental practice Swanage telling us that they are no longer going to be serving NHS patients and we need to pay a private subscription + costs for each visit. It seems that the nearest NHS dentist now who are taking on new patients are either in Dorchester or Weymouth. The ones in Poole and Bournemouth who are showing as taking on NHS work are saying they are full. Shouldn’t a town the size of Swanage have at least one NHS dentist so the people who cant get to Dorchester or Weymouth can get dental treatment without being ripped off after years of paying tax for the NHS ?
