COVID-19 Recovery Committee
Recovery of NHS dental services
The inquiry tracked progress on the aims set out in the NHS Recovery Plan 2021-2026. This included a commitment to return NHS dentistry services to pre-pandemic levels.
The inquiry tracked progress on this commitment, with a focus on the following issues—
- Whether funding has improved ventilation and other equipment;
- Whether NHS dentistry services have recovered to pre-pandemic levels; and
- How access to services is being targeted in communities that experience health inequalities.
The Committee launched a survey to understand dentists’ views of the recovery of NHS services.
We wanted to hear from dentists who provide NHS services. The purpose of the survey was to understand dentists’ views of the recovery of NHS services.
