Will the Minister breakdown the number of NHS dentistry spaces available each year in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, over the last 5 years?

Answered by Minister for Health and Social Services | Answered on 15/03/2024

The Welsh Government does not hold information on the number of dentistry spaces available.

Historical dental activity that is provided through the General Dental Service is available on the Stats Wales website on the following link:

The data is collated and recorded at Health Board level rather than local authority level. In 2022/23 128,064 courses of treatment were provided to patients in the Hywel Dda University Health Board area.
