From 1 July 2022, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will be dissolved, and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) will take over the responsibility for NHS functions and budgets. We will become part of NHS Humber and North Yorkshire ICB. You can continue to use this website to find the information you need, which remains relevant for the Hull area.

From today (8 June) dental practices in Hull are able to open. Practices will need to prioritise patients with the most urgent need.

If you need help from a dentist:

  • contact your dental practice by phone or email.
  • you will be given advice or offered an appointment if appropriate.
  • for urgent dental care you can also use the NHS 111 online service.

If you are told to visit your dentist, you may notice some changes have been made to keep you and your dental team safe.

  • Your practice will look different as it observes social distancing and hygiene rules.
  • The dental team may also be wearing different protective equipment to what you are used to seeing.
  • The range of treatments you will be offered may be different to what you received previously.
  • Treatments offered may vary from practice to practice.
  • This will depend on the staff and equipment available at the time and is to ensure your safety and that of the dental team.

Please do not visit your practice unless you’ve been advised to. This will ensure they can continue to provide essential care safely.

If you think you need urgent dental treatment:

  • call your dentist
  • if you cannot contact your dentist, or you do not have one, use the NHS 111 online service

If a clinical appointment is necessary, this may take place at your dental practice or at an urgent dental care centre.
