Local dental providers offer NHS urgent dental clinics across Cheshire and Merseyside, with urgent appointments for patients who need urgent treatment, advice and support on dental queries or referral to other services.

The service is provided according to strict clinical criteri

a and when you call you'll be assessed by a member of our clinical team to make sure your problem come under either:

  • Trauma - this is usually caused by a blow to the face, a lost filling is not classed as a trauma.
  • Swelling of the face
  • Bleeding, uncontrolled, such as after an extraction
  • Pain that can't be controlled by pain relief medicines.

If you're given an appointment and your problem doesn't fit of the above, you'll still have to pay the NHS fee but may receive advice and not treatment.

Clinic times vary.and at busy times or when your local clinic's not available you may be offered an appointment at an alternative location.

Please not: this is an appointment only service - we do not operate a "drop in" service at any of our surgeries

Patient Group

The surgery has an active patient group which meets twice a year in June and December. We consult with our patient group about the way we deliver our services and over the years the group has contributed significantly to the introduction of a number of positive changes for the practice. We are also members of the National Association for Patient Participation (N.A.P.P). N.A.P.P. regularly publish e-bulletins and newsletters which you can access via their website

Everyone is welcome at our meetings which are held at the surgery on first Wednesdays of June and December, 6:30pm – 8.00pm.

Please note: The Patient Group Meeting is not a forum for individuals to raise personal issues. The comments, concerns and complaints procedure should be used in such instances.

Some of the more recent changes your patient group has been, or will be, involved in are:

  • We have recently implemented an easy to operate self check-in system which allows patients to book in for their appointment without needing to speak to a receptionist. This helped to alleviate queues at the reception desk and is proving popular with patients.
  • We have simplified our patient questionnaire which can be completed on-line. Paper copies of the questionnaire are also available in the waiting room. The Patient Questionnaire will be run throughout the year and the results will presented at the patient group meetings. Any comments, suggestions and ideas are discussed and may be used to drive service changes .
  • We now text patients who have given us their mobile numbers a confirmation of their appointment date and time when they book an appointment. Read more about our texting service here . We never reveal confidential information in a text message. We provide a practice email address at and we offer online patient bookable appointments. If you have any suggestions about other things you would like to be able to access using this facility please let us know and we will consider your request
