"Cannot get through to an out of hours dentist"

About: Tameside and Glossop PCT

(as the patient),

I broke a tooth on Friday night.

9 o'clock Saturday morning I rang the emergency dentist number I had from 2-3 years ago. The number was no longer recognised - no new number was given.

I looked up the new number on the Tamesides & Glossop PCT. I rang it only to be told it had changed (How long does it take to change a website?) I rang the new number. After the opening message, the music started after one (horrible) tune the line went silent. After 5-6 minutes I was transferred to NHS Direct who were very helpful.

From past experience I know the Emergency Dentists are very good - when you can get through to them

Come on Tameside and Glossop PCT - let's have it sorted out
