Dentistry and Optician


General Practice staff cannot give advice about dental issues. We have put together a summary of advice regarding dental abscesses -click here to read more.

Please contact your registered dentist if you have a dental problem, if you are not registered with a dentist please contact NHS111.

We have a policy relating to prescribing for dental illnesses here.

Community Eye Care Service (CECS)

Symptoms that can be seen under the service include:

  • Loss of vision, including transient loss
  • Flashes and floaters
  • Ocular pain and irritation
  • Eye infections that have not responded to treatment 
  • Trichiasis (in growing eyelashes)

If you have dry eye or red eye symptoms you may be advised to self-care or seek support from your local pharmacy first.

The Community Urgent Eyecare Service provides urgent assessment, treatment or referral for sudden onset eye problems. You should contact your chosen practice by telephone and ask for an urgent eyecare service appointment, visit their website to see local eligible opticians and their contact details.
