Accessing dental care in Central Bedfordshire
Many people have reported struggling to access NHS dentistry for routine care because practices are either not taking on new NHS patients or have no available NHS appointments, and the pandemic has made this even more difficult. We would like to hear from you about your experience.
We would like to hear from you about your experience so we can share this information with key stakeholders and NHS England, to help influence improvements to accessing NHS dental services across Central Bedfordshire.
The Leighton Buzzard Primary Care Network is excited to announce the opening this week of the Leighton Buzzard COVID-19 vaccination centre.
This will be based at the Leighton Buzzard Rugby Club on Stanbridge Road and will be a jointly run service by all three general practices in the town.
The site will be a mass vaccination centre for patients registered with a GP Practice in Leighton Buzzard.
All patients will be contacted by their Practice to arrange an appointment. These will be arranged in the government’s published priority order. Please do not contact your Practice or the Rugby Club to arrange an appointment.
