You may have heard that from 1st of November we are moving to Phase 4 of the NHS National Dental Mobilisation Plan.
This means that theoretically we will be able to provide the full range of NHS treatments to all patients in need of both urgent and non urgent care.
Unfortunately it is not business as usual.
Firstly, staff and patient safety remains our primary concern as we are in the midst of a second wave of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Secondly, the provision of NHS care will be contingent on the supply of NHS PPE and at present we have only limited PPE provided to us by NHS. And we are still working through our extensive routine treatment and examination waiting lists.
At Lansdowne Dental Care we have mitigated against PPE supply chain issues by purchasing our own stocks and we remain confident that we will be able to continue to offer a full range of care on a private basis.
We constantly aim to improve the quality of care at every level and are currently looking at alternative ways to ensure that the level of service and care can be improved upon as we evolve into our new way of working.
The team at Lansdowne would like to thank all of our patients for your patience and forbearance during the past 7 months, and for your understanding and cooperation whilst we implement new measures at the practice.
