From April 2019, Local Care Direct has been delivering the Dental Clinical Assessment & Booking Service for the whole of Yorkshire and the Humber.
This is a new service which has been designed for those aged over 5 experiencing an urgent dental issue. The service provides specialist clinical advice and support. Then, depending on the patient need the consultation will result in either self-care advice, direct booking of an Urgent Dental Treatment appointment, or signposting to the appropriate place to meet their need.
The service is accessed by calling 111 and selecting the appropriate option.
