Ser­vice shaped by pa­tients

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A NEW mi­nor oral surgery ser­vice in Peter­bor­ough wel­comed a visit from three pa­tient rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Keith Smith, Joan El­lis and Mil Bishop paid a visit to the new Den­tal Ac­cess Cen­tre in Midgate.

Their opin­ions and work be­tween April and De­cem­ber 2009 in­formed NHS Peter­bor­ough’s de­ci­sion to award its mi­nor oral surgery con­tract to Oa­sis Den­tal Care. They were also key in mak­ing sure the ser­vice was lo­cated in an ac­ces­si­ble city cen­tre lo­ca­tion.

Sarah Shut­tle­wood, of NHS Peter­bor­ough, said: “We’re com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing high qual­ity, value for money, lo­cally-de­liv­ered ser­vices that are ac­ces­si­ble to all. Our com­mit­ment is to lis­ten to views of lo­cal peo­ple and take them into con­sid­er­a­tion when plan­ning new ser­vices.”
