I want a FAIR DEAL for Wirral West

On the 4th July we’ll be voting in the general election.  Hopefully we’ll get rid of this terrible Tory government.  I’m delighted that I’ve been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Wirral West constituency.

Where does Peter stand?

We need to:

Rescue the NHS from years of Tory neglect and underfunding.

Save the environment by stopping pollution, including sewage dumping.

Stand up for carers and stop the DWP hounding them for DWP’s own failures.

Stop the Tories scrapping or weakening the Human Rights Act.

Introduce a fair voting system so seats won match votes cast.

Restore our links to Europe and eventually join the European single market.

The more votes the Liberal Democrats get the more we can influence the direction of the next Government.

Dental plan “too little too late” for 189,820 children not seen by an NHS dentist in Cheshire and Merseyside Integrated Care Board.

Wirral’s Liberal Democrats have slammed the Government’s new dental plan as figures show 189,820 children in Cheshire and Merseyside had not been seen by an NHS dentist in 12 months.

The research, commissioned from the House of Commons Library, estimates the number of children who weren’t seen by an NHS dentist in the year to June 2023, based on the latest data from the health service.

It shows a staggering 39% of children who had not been seen by a dentist in Cheshire and Merseyside over the twelve month period.

 

In Cheshire and Merseyside, 51.3% of adults had not been seen by an NHS dentist in the two years to June 2023. That equates to 973,351 people who went without NHS dental care over a 24 month period.

The Government’s new Dental Plan will see cash incentives for NHS dentists, mobile dental services and dental teams visiting schools and nurseries. 

It has previously been estimated that the NHS budget was underspent by a record £400m last year, due to dentists not finding it economic to take on NHS work. 

The Lib Dems are calling for a dental healthcare rescue plan to boost the number of appointments. The Liberal Democrats are also calling for reforms to guarantee access to an NHS dentist for everyone needing urgent and emergency care, ending DIY dentistry and “dental deserts”, and the removal of VAT on children’s toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Wirral West, Peter Reisdorf said: 

“The government’s plans are too little too late for local families who have been left waiting in pain struggling to get a dentist appointment.

“It is appalling that so many children in our area are struggling to see an NHS dentist when they need to. We know that if children can’t access dental healthcare it can disrupt their eating, sleeping and learning. 

“Instead of these half-baked reforms, we need a proper rescue package for dental healthcare. That means guaranteeing access to an NHS dentist for everyone needing emergency care, boosting the number of appointments and removing VAT on children’s toothbrushes and toothpaste.”
