In a shocking investigation of dentistry services across the UK, new analysis by the BBC has found that 91% of dentistry practices in Worcestershire are not accepting any new NHS patients.
The figures were released alongside harrowing accounts of DIY dentistry as hard-working families and pensioners struggle to find the affordable care that they need while others have been forced to wait in agony for months due to a lack of NHS dentist appointments.
Liberal Democrats are calling on the government to stop the decline in NHS dentistry seen in Worcestershire. The Lib Dems have started a petition that insists all levels of government work together to make NHS dentistry more attractive by funding our local dentists properly and working with local communities to make sure dentists are recruited to where they are needed most.
It has been an amazing night for the Lib Dems. Overturning a 24,000 vote majority is record breaking and our new MP Richard Foord now sits on a 6,000 majority.
A huge thank you to all our members and supporters who went to help down in Devon. 2000 people went to help deliver 800,000 leaflets, knock on doors 120,000 times and they spoke to 40,000 people.
But now we turn back to West-Worcestershire. As we head to the 2023 council elections, and start to look to the next General Election, we need your help.
As Liberal Democrats we are proud of our volunteer network and rely on the free time of and donations from our residents. Unlike other political party's we do not have large donors who pay for delivery from a private company or produce our literature en-masse. We do all of our work locally and our proud of our fantastic volunteers.
We can always use more help and would welcome anyone who can spare some time. Whether it is delivering a few leaflets, helping with admin or even standing for your local town or parish council, we would love to hear from you.
We also have plenty of specialist roles that we need help with so if you are are good at producing literature or you like organising events, we have a role for everyone. Think you can help? Sign up on our website and our team will be in contact.
