Primary Care Dental Service (PCDS)

COVID-19 information  

Update July 2022

As most COVID-19 restrictions in England have been lifted, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our patients and families for their understanding and patience during the past two years...

In response to the initial lockdown implemented in March 2020, our team provided an urgent dental care service for those most in need across the Bristol and Bath area. This continued for several months and proved to be a very busy time for the service. However, as of September 2020 the service restarted routine appointments and have since been busy reviewing and treating our many registered patients across the Bristol, Bath and North Somerset area.

We continue to run daily clinics from our community departments based at Riverside Health Centre, Southmead Health Centre, Yate Health Centre, Charlotte Keel Health Centre and Weston General Hospital from Monday to Friday. We also run clinics from St Martin's Hospital three times per week, and a domiciliary service for referrals that meet the criteria for this.

In order to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of patients and staff across the service, we are continuing to follow appropriate measures throughout our locations. Although masks and social distancing are no longer required in most public settings, we ask that visitors wear masks when entering our surgeries and clinical areas and use the hand sanitiser available.

Our friendly clinic co-ordinators are contacting patients when an appropriate appointment is available, but if you have a query or concern please contact the relevant site - a member of the team will be happy to help!

Best wishes,

Primary Care Dental Service Team, UHBW
