AnythingElse: I phoned my dentist on a Sunday evening as I knew there would be details of how to contact an emergency dentist. I was given the 0845 number which directed me to the Croydon emergency dental service, when I got through I was told I could not be seen as I did not come under the Croydon area (we live 10 Minutes away). My son needed antibiotics for a wisdom tooth which has been an on-going problem. I was then directed to the 111 service which was very helpful, however they could not send me to Croydon but I could go to Kings College hospital which is a good hour away! He only needed a prescription and I found the whole thing to be very frustrating, especially as we could have gone to Croydon and been there and back in half an hour! Someone does need to sort this out.
