Healthwatch Norfolk Dental Summit 2024

Find out more about the first Healthwatch Norfolk Dental Summit, how you can share your dental experiences, and more details about the event.

Patients across Norfolk are still struggling to access NHS dental care, a survey shows.

Healthwatch Norfolk discovered that no practices are accepting new NHS patients, more practices have opted to only take private patients, and concerns about this represent around a third of all enquiries it receives. You can read more about what we found below.

Six months on from its publication, we want to discover more about what the issues are, share some patient stories, and find out what can be done to provide an improved dental service for people in Norfolk.

These ideas will be drawn together at Healthwatch Norfolk’s first dental summit which is being held at The Garage on Chapelfield North in Norwich on Thursday September 19 at 5pm.

We are keen to hear your stories and experiences of dentistry in Norfolk. We will also be looking for case studies and real-life experiences which we can share at the summit. If you would like to take part in the survey, click the link below. 

Please keep an eye on this page as we will also be making free tickets available online for the event on this page from late Spring.
