NEW DENTAL PRACTICE COULD OPEN IN LAKE

Published at:

A new dental practice could come to Lake — as a different medical practice down the road closes its doors.

Plans have been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council, by a Mr and Mrs Wilson, for a dental practice on Sandown Road in Lake — converting a vacant shop and adding a flat upstairs.

The run down shop, which used to be home to a branch of Swinton Insurance, is close to Beech Grove Surgery, which has now closed to patients in the village, due to doctors’ retirement and the lack of GP recruitment on the Island. The Beech Grove Surgery in Brading is set to close at the end of the this month.

A new shop front would be created but the internal layout would be reconfigured to provide a number of rooms, including a reception area, treating and consultation rooms and toilets.

The planning statement also says the unique operator will invest heavily in the premises to provide further potential benefits for the Island — on this occasion a dentist.

Previously, Island residents have complained about the lack of dentists, long waits for appointments and not being able to get of the waiting list for a place at a surgery.

Comments on the application can be made until 21st April.

No dental treatment likely for many months now. The risk is too high for both dentist and patients. Guess the building will remain as is, adding to the ‘ambiance’ of this tired and tatty ‘town’, normally packed solid with cars all day and chavs all evening and night.

NHS treatment by such dentists will likely end now because of the huge costs of CV will need paying back and dentist will not be viewed as essential in the pre CV NHS and welfare world we have yet to face.

Too many not paying in anything will bring the whole system down in this critical times. Best clean them well.

And all the people who don’t go to work will get all the places and the ones at work (and paying for this) will loose out as they ARE AT WORK.
