Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.

Emergency dental service

How to access the service

If your child has a dental emergency, seek advice from your dentist in the first instance.

Please be aware that as of Monday 11 January 2021, we will no longer be accepting walk-in patients to our emergency dental services.

The children's dental emergency clinic is located at the Dental Centre at St Thomas' Hospital. To access this service please call NHS 111.

An NHS nurse will assess your child over the phone, and if appropriate, will book them to be seen.

We have a limited number of appointments each day. The NHS 111 service may book you into an urgent dental care centre closer to you.


For general enquiries please call 020 7188 8006
