Dental Problems

It is the policy of Heswall & Pensby Group Practice to not prescribe for dental conditions or problems. This is in line with guidance from the British Medical Association.

Dental Practitioners are able to prescribe a variety of drugs, including antibiotics and analgesia, on the NHS. They are also able to prescribe any medicine from the British National Formulary (BNF) on a private prescription if they felt it was appropriate for a dental need.

Please see the Guidance from the General Dental Council

You should instead book an appointment with your dentist.

If you are not registered with a dentist, the number for emergency dental care is 0161 476 9651. Antibiotics will not help with dental pain and your GP will not prescribe them for this reason. You can get over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen from your pharmacist while awaiting dental treatment.
