"Much needed help"

Anything else?

I attended the hospital whilst suffering severe pain in my lower jaw.I got there at 06:15 and was first , by 7:00 there were 23 people in the que..The doors opened promptly at 7:30 and I got a no1 ticket. (Be aware they only take 10 in the morning and 10 in the afternoon also make sure you protect your place in the que it's a rush when the doors open) I ended up having a broken molar and a infected wisdom tooth extracted staff were excellent and my treatment the best I have ever had . The two young female dentists who extracted my teeth were so polite and friendly but most importantly efficient and competent with the treatment.I was out and smiling with no pain by 12:00. I'd like to thank all the staff for there profesonalisim,they are a credit to the NHS. All they need now is a nice new hospital.. They deserve it .

Thank you for your feedback which has been shared with the staff team in the Primary Care Department. The current dental hospital is 50 years old and plans have been developed to build a new Dental Hospital for Birmingham, and we are hopeful that this will open in 2015.
