Primary Care Dental Service (PCDS)

COVID-19 information  

Update October 2020

As we enter the Autumn and Winter period, we would like to provide you with a little update regarding our service and operational sites.

During the Spring and Summer months of 2020, the Primary Care Dental Service was unable to offer routine appointments to our patients as during this time our team provided an urgent dental care service for those most in need across the Bristol and Bath areas. This was a very busy time for the service, and the team worked incredibly hard to provide the best possible care to all those patients most in need.

As we progress through the year, we have seen the reopening of many general dental practices in the area. These GDPs have begun to welcome back patients for face to face assessments and treatments, and whilst we continue to support urgent dental care needs, we have recently been able to reopen two more of our designated community sites - Southmead Health Centre, and Yate Health Centre - to increase the amount of appointments we can offer our own community based patients throughout the week.

In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of patients and staff across the service, we are continuing to prioritise patients on a clinical basis whilst scheduling appointments up to two weeks in advance. Our friendly team are contacting patients when an appropriate appointment is available, but if there are any queries or concerns regarding a patient's oral health then we can be contacted  - we are happy to offer advice and where appropriate will schedule an appointment with one of our dedicated team members.

Whilst we are working hard to arrange appointments at our operational sites, we are not able to visit patients at home at this time. If you, a family member or resident need urgent dental care which would normally be assessed at home, please contact us to discuss.
