Access to dental services in minority communities.
Healthwatch Southwark is your independent health and social care champion. We listen to local people about what matters to them and ensure that NHS leaders and decision-makers take this on board to drive improvements. More information about Healthwatch Southwark and our work can be found here.
Resident feedback has suggested that certain sections of Southwark's communities (Black African/Caribbean/Latin American, traveller community and people on low income) are experiencing challenges/issues accessing NHS dental services. As a result of this initial feedback, Healthwatch Southwark has prioritised exploring the problems/difficulties further and has decided to engage with residents to hear their experiences and gather suggestions for improving NHS dental service access.
We are gathering residents feedback through this survey and by holding group discussions and 1-2-1 interviews. Your feedback is essential as it will hopefully contribute towards addressing access issues and improving services for your community in the future.
If you have any questions about the project or would like support completing the survey, please get in touch with us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 020 3848 6546.
