"Difficulties getting a dentist appointment"

About: Bolton PCT

(as the patient),

I have tried many times to get an NHS Dentist but failed

I was going on holiday and I was having dental problems so tried to get an urgent appointment which I eventually succeeded in doing.

I had to travel but at least I had an appointment.

Unfortunately after my treatment I continued to have a problem. I needed to see the same dentist as I did not want to have to pay again but trying to make an appointment to see the same dentist again proved to be very difficult as I had to go through NHS Boltons Emergency booking procedure again which kept telling me there were no appointments.
