Improving dental services in Cornwall

George has been contacted by many constituents about the problems they are experiencing in accessing a good local NHS dental service. He is concerned by reports of constituents who are placed on waiting lists for large periods of time. 

George first wrote the attached letter to Mark Cooke, Director of Commissioning Operations for NHS England South SW to express those concerns. He has since had a telephone meeting with Mark Cooke to discuss what more can be done to support dental services in Cornwall. 

Following this meeting, George has written to and met with the minister responsible for NHS England and Dentists, Steve Brine MP to ensure that the Department for Health were aware of the problems people are facing. The minister assured George that he was looking into the matter and that NHS England would continue to work to deliver services.
