We will be adding the NHS number onto our referral pads from dentists at the next reprint and have asked them to provide us with that information where it is available. We will also be capturing this information from you the patient. This is to come in line with the recent request to use this information as a further means of identifying the correct person within the NHS.

Please help us if asked for this information in the future. It will become an important number as you will be asked for it during any treatment or check up within the Health Service.
