Island's pitfalls in preventative dentistry

MHK wants to see interim measures

Northern patients aren't getting regular NHS dentist checkups, and many can't afford to go private - according to both Ramsey MHKs.

Constituents are contacting members Lawrie Hooper and Dr Alex Allinson, complaining that they can't get an appointment when they need one.

In response, Mr Hooper met with the Department of Health and Social Care and says work is underway, but the service can't be fixed overnight.

He says why interim measures should be implemented NOW
