‘High likelihood’ that dentistry pledge is not reliable – minister

The Independent, 19th March 2024

The Government’s pledge to deliver 2.5 million more appointments through its dentistry reforms may not be entirely “reliable”, a minister has admitted.

Preet Kaur Gill, shadow minister for primary care and public health, said: “This shocking admission from the minister that she isn’t sure the Government can deliver promised dental appointments shows the Conservatives are out of ideas and out of time.

“After 14 years of Conservative neglect, patients are desperately queuing around the block to see a dentist, literally pulling their own teeth out, and tooth decay is the number one reason young children are admitted to hospital.

“Labour has a plan to rescue NHS dentistry, and reform it for the long run.”
