• Covid-19

     

    We are trying to prioritise our patients who may be at more risk of decay or gum disease

    while the service is restricted.

     

    If you have any dental concerns, you may now book in for a face to face assessment with your dentist.

    This will not be a normal full check up, but focused on avoiding any problems getting worse, offering treatment if possible and putting you on the correct waiting list.

    The usual NHS fee (£22.70) applies if you pay for your treatment.

     

    Please ring 01516453967 if you have any dental concerns and require a face to face assessment.

    Please ring in the afternoons when lines are less busy.

     

    You may also e-mail or speak to someone for some advice if you have any concerns and are having to stay at home, this will usually be with your regular dentist or hygienist.

     

    Attendance will be by appointment due to Covid restrictions.

     

    To support NHS services, it is important that you do not visit hospitals or

    A&E departments with dental problems.

     

    Outside of our opening hours or if you do not have a dentist, NHS England provides an emergency service for all patients, please call the Cheshire & Merseyside Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651. They will assess you and provide advice over the phone which may result in a remote consultation with a dentist.

This Privacy Notice explains what Personal Data the practice holds, why we hold and process it, who we might share it with, and your rights and freedoms under the Law.

Who might we share your data with?

6. Tell us not to actively process or update your data in certain circumstances.

How long is the Personal Data stored for?

1. We will store patient data for as long as we are providing care, treatment or recalling patients for further care. We will archive (that is, store it without further action) for as long as is required for legal purposes as recommended by the NHS or other trusted experts recommend.
2. We must store employment data for six years after an employee has left.
3. We must store contractors’ data for seven years after the contract is ended.
