NHS England confirmed earlier this year that a new contract to provide dental services in both Amble and Rothbury was in place, and that services would be operational from 1 December 2019. The contract will start as planned on this date for the Amble practice, however, there will be a slight delay with the service in Rothbury. The service will operate from Rothbury Community Hospital and preparation of the premises is not yet complete. This means the service for Rothbury is now due to start from mid to late January 2020.
We will provide updates as and when we have them.
