The Mersea Road dentist surgery has been serving people in South Colchester for decades. But over the past year the powers that be decided to remove the funding that provided the NHS dentistry at Mersea Road. Dave Harris wrote a petition, campaigned tirelessly to keep our NHS dentist and argued with NHS England about the need to keep our local dentist.
3 meetings with the NHS England, and then raising at the County Council Health and Overview scrutiny committee together with a call to Healthwatch proved the power and passion to keep our local services
Now - it has been announced that the Mersea Road dentist is to be at last given a reprieve and will be left serving the people of South Colchester - especially the people in the CO2 post codes in Colchester
Dave Harris said "I am very pleased that the future dental health of my constituents is assured by retaining Mersea Road dentists"
