Eye and Dental issues
We would like to remind patients that for all acute eye and dental issues your local optician and dentist are open and able to assess you if you have concerns in either of these areas.
Acutely painful, red eyes or visual change can be dealt with by opticians and they have an emergency service for such complaints. Any dental issue should be directed towards your dentist or, if you do not have one, the dental hospital via 111.
