To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent assessment she has made of the level of access to NHS dentistry.
Access to NHS dentistry is increasing—in April 2006, primary care trusts had commissioned 75 million annual units of dental activity; by January 2007 that had increased to 78.4 million

But she's been saying for the past few days that a lot of the figures that REALLY count are not held centrally!!!!
So what if 78.4 million UDAs have been commissioned, if they have no idea how many UDAs the average dental patient needs?
She lives in a land of clouds and cuckoos!!

Agreed, who cares if 78.4 million UDAs are comissioned if the requirement is 100 million, or 200 million. The simple fact is that the majority of the country have no access to NHS dentistry.
