Reforms to NHS Dentistry debate
Sharon Hodgson spoke in the Chamber on the state of our NHS dentistry system, after the Conservative double whammy of handing out a 8.5% price hike to everyone’s dental costs during the midst of the worst ever cost-of-living crisis – whilst also seeing the closure of the BUPA dental practice in Pennywell.
Everywhere you look you’re paying more and getting less under this Conservative Government.
We cannot accept that dental care becomes a luxury, available only to those who can afford it.
These are political choices being made by the Tory Prime Minister and his billionaire buddies, who have never had to worry about the cost of anything such as this, or understand the effect this record increase will have on the cost-of-living pressures facing ordinary people in the North East.
We need a Labour Government that will prioritise healthcare access for all, clean up 13 years of Tory under-funding and mismanagement, and abolish the Prime Minister’s precious non-dom status, to provide the treatment and dental care that the British people deserve.
We should not have to suffer because of Tory chaos and managed decline, that leaves dental care a luxury for the few.
The damage that the Conservative Party has done to our country has been immense.
While the economic shocks from Covid-19 and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could not be predicted, Britain is lagging in its recovery compared to our G7 counterparts.

Tories are making life harder for people every day they are in office.
The kamikaze budget will have significant repercussions for household bills, budgets and the future of the country.
Shocking figures show that on average, Northumbrian Water discharged raw sewage every 23 minutes, devastating the North East’s tourism and leisure hotspots.
