BDA Chief warns Chancellor against cuts
Martin Woodrow, BDA Chief Executive has written to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt warning against further cuts to the already struggling NHS dental industry
Any further cuts to the health budget in England and Wales will effectively “kill” dental services, new Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has been told.
The Guardian is reporting that it has seen an email to the Chancellor from BDA chief executive Martin Woodrow as speculation grows of further cuts to NHS spending.
In it, he is said to warn that any additional reduction in budgets would deny millions of patients access to a dentist.
The BDA chief executive is reported to have said that dentistry has already been faced with cuts “with no parallel in the health service”. And he added that there was “simply no more fat to trim” without denying access to more and more people. Read the Guardian article here.
