Am I eligible for NHS treatment or Not?

  • June 7th, 2016

We are able to offer NHS treatment to children and Private treatment 18 years and over.
The practice provides treatment for patients under the age of 17 within the National Health Service regulations. From 1st April 2006 the government new arrangements are designed to target treatment to those with the greatest health need. As a result, a new scale of severity of orthodontic problems has been introduced. Only those with the severest problems can be treated. All other patients have to be seen on a private basis.

Important Notice:

We accept a minimum of one day notice before cancelling the appointment. More than one missed or cancelled appointments without giving notice may incur a charge. More than three missed appointments (without cancelling) may lead to the discontinuation of your treatment.

Occasionally we may need to rearrange clinics at short notice for a variety of reasons such as training courses or illness. We do sometimes run late, often due to emergency repairs or a previous patient arriving late - please bear with us and allow sufficient time.
