NHS England survey for parents about future orthodontic services in the Midlands


Parents - help shape NHS orthodontic services


NHS England wants to hear your views about how you feel child orthodontic services should be delivered in the future.

  • Orthodontic treatment, which often involves fitting braces, is used to:
  • improve the appearance and alignment of crooked, protruding or crowded teeth; and correct problems with the bite of the teeth.

We would like to encourage Parents of primary age children in the Midlands to complete this online survey, which asks for your views about:

  • preferred appointment times
  • whether they would prefer their child’s orthodontist to be based near their home, school or place of work
  • how important it is that their child’s orthodontist is accessible using public transport
  • acceptable waiting times for assessment and treatment

Healthwatch BannerParents whose children are already receiving treatment are also asked to rate the quality of the service and share any suggestions they may have about how it could be improved.


An NHS spokesperson said: “We are responsible for planning, buying and monitoring NHS orthodontic services to make sure they meet the needs of local people. We will soon be arranging new contracts to provide these services in the future and we want to hear the people’s views about what the services should look like.


“Please take a few minutes to complete the online survey so your views can be taken into account.”

You can complete the survey here:   


By completing this survey, you are consenting to the information being shared with NHS England Midlands & East (Central Midlands). Thank you.


The closing date is Sunday 25 November 2018.
