Stornoway dental centre open day

Members of the public are being invited by NHS Western Isles to attend an Open Day in the new Western Isles Dental Centre.

The Open Day will take place on Saturday February 5th from 10am to 2pm, when tours of the new centre will be provided.

The new Dental Centre, located adjacent to Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway, took just nine months to construct, and feedback from both patients and staff on the new facility has been excellent since the first patient was treated on December 30th.

General practitioner surgeries and patient areas are located on the ground floor with training facilities and staff areas located on the first floor. The training facilities will be utilised by NHS Education for Scotland in association with Scottish Universities and Colleges and will help to sustain the improved dental facilities on the islands by attracting promising dental students to the facility, year on year.
