A further update from your Barrowford Dental team

Us again! After this mornings news from the government that we should “prepare for routine care”, we have had a further update out of the blue this afternoon.

From the 8th of June we have been given permission to re open to see patients. We just wanted to reassure you that we are busy working on a plan to deliver our highest standard of care in the safest manner possible.

If you have contacted us during lockdown, we will be in touch to arrange to see you.

Keep an eye on Facebook and this page for updates.

Thanks for your support.

Keep well,

From the Barrowford Dental Team

Thanks for the update, stay safe everyone x

Thank you for the update. Take care!!

Thank-you.

I am a patient of this practice and I know that no one wishes dental practices to reopen more than dentists, however the profession seems to be forgotten with no date in site for a return to normal. I think it is unacceptable that patients are having to suffer and some dental practices are facing closure if they are unable to reopen soon. I note that the Chief Dental Officer for Scotland has managed to publish a plan for dentists to reopen at some time in the future, but nothing from the CDO for England, Sara Hurley.
I hope that patients contact the local MP Andrew Stephenson and complain as I have done.
As an important note I think Barrowford Dental Surgery and its dentist practitioners are a credit to the profession and no blame is attached to them, however the picture in all of the UK is hopeless.

Take care and stay safe, and do not take unnecessary risks to yourself, and the practice.

Thanks for your comments, and particular thanks to Mr Burt for contacting your local MP.

It is true that dentists have been forgotten about during this pandemic and our CDO Sara Hurley has been AWOL for most of the pandemic.

We learnt from the BBC this evening, at the same time as you did, that we will be able to re open from the 8th of June.

We’re working hard on a plan behind the scenes and will prioritise anyone who has contacted us during the lockdown, is in pain or has a lost filling or crown

Thanks for your ongoing support.
