A WHITCHURCH-based dental practice is supporting a local campaign to improve services across Shropshire.

Helen Morgan, North Shropshire MP, received support from a Whitchurch dental practice for her NHS dental petition.

She is advocating NHS contract reform, expanded training opportunities for new dentists, and revised recruitment procedures for rural dental care. 


Green End Dental Practice are supporting the campaign and have copies of the petition and posters up at their site in Whitchurch for residents to sign.

Stephanie Leach, Green End Dental Practice Manager said:“We are desperate to be in a position to offer more places on our NHS Active List, however this cannot be done until NHS Dentist vacancies are filled.”

Residents of Whitchurch and the surrounding area can either sign the petition online at https://www.helenmorgan.org.uk/dental or by signing a copy at Green End.

Mrs Morgan confirmed that over 1,000 residents have signed the petition.

Mrs Morgan added: “There is clearly public demand for action, and far too many stories of people unable to access the care they need.

“Speaking to dentists across North Shropshire, many are really supportive of our efforts.

“I’m especially thankful to Green End Dental Practice in Whitchurch who have copies of the petition for people to sign.”
