Letter to patients re: NHS access in Plymouth

You have been directed to this page via a text message because we have not been able to get in touch with you via your email address. We have important information about your access to NHS funded treatment.

Please read the letter below sent to patients affected by a recent change in our NHS funding.

Letter: NHS appointments at SpaDental Plymouth

We are writing to you today as you have previously attended SpaDental Plymouth as an NHS patient and our records show it is time for you to book an appointment. However, due to the shortage of dentists delivering NHS funded treatment, we are only able to book private appointments.  

If you’d like to book an appointment, please consider:  

  • Joining the SpaDental Plymouth Essentials patient plan.  Our entry level Essential Plan includes an annual check-up with a dentist and one hygienist appointment a year. The monthly fee for one dental examination and one hygiene appointment is £14.87. You also benefit from a 10% discount applied to essential restorative treatments and worldwide emergency dental assistance.
  • Registering as a private patient.  You may pay for a full range of essential, restorative and cosmetic treatments at SpaDental Plymouth as and when you need them. 

You can read more detail about the options for private care at: https://www.spadental.co.uk/plymouth/nhs-alternatives/ 

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you.
