"Not able to see emergency dentist. What now?"

About: Blackpool PCT / Emergency dental service

(as the patient),

Phoned emergency dentist and told full to capacity. Told her I had a tooth out on Wednesday and I'm in agony and my face is swollen. I asked if I could go to walk in centre and was told no. My honest opinion of this service is that it is of no use as an emergency service. The cover is obviously inadequate and I am astounded that I cannot visit the walk-in centre.

One angry resident who feels sick has a swollen face and in a great deal of pain.
