Patient recall of Nottinghamshire dental patients

Vernon Coaker, MP for Gedling, and Cllr John Clarke, Leader of Gedling Council, responding to the announcement by NHS England of a recall of 22,000 patients due to possible risk of infection, have said:

“This report will cause a great deal of anxiety for local residents. Its findings are shocking and disturbing.


“It is hugely important that every immediate effort is made to alert those who are affected and provide information, support and reassurance.  This must be done quickly and effectively.


“There are still significant questions that remain about the chronology and management of these events. It is clear to us that a full independent investigation is required to ensure that lessons are learned for the future.


“We have asked for an urgent meeting with the Secretary of State for Health and will seek assurances of behalf of Gedling residents that everything possible is being done to resolve these very worrying and urgent matters.”
