Hawkwell/Hockley Dental Practice Loses half of NHS Funding To A Practice That Hasn’t Even Been Built

If you live in Hawkwell or Hockley please write to Andrew Pike, CEO of the South Essex NHS at andrew.pike [at] see-pct.nhs [dot] uk and object to the cut in funding.

White Hart Dental Care in Hockley, Essex is to lose part of its NHS funding in March 2010. Dr Luke Schnel was given an additional temporary NHS contract in June 2008, which allowed him to employ an additional 2 NHS dentists (Dr Beverley Scott and Dr Abdul Salim-Said) at his modern practice. They have since treated over 2,000 new NHS patients, significantly improving access to NHS dentistry in the area. .
