Leeds dental clinic forced to close amid concerns over anti-social behaviour
A dental clinic in the Harehills area of Leeds is closing down amid concerns over anti-social behaviour.
Mydentist has taken the decision to shut Compton Road Dental Practice and merge with a sister practice on Chapeltown Road as a result of increasingly frequent incidents of anti-social behaviour. Patients have been informed, and are being transferred to the Chapeltown Road surgery.
In a letter to patients, the management team explained that the decision had been made based on “increasing anti-social behaviour in the area” and added that the safety and wellbeing of patients and staff were a priority. Patients will now be relocated to other mydentist clinics in the same part of the city and the firm is aiming to keep disruption to a minimum.
The team at the Compton Road practice was aiming to complete as many open courses of treatment by November 30th, with those still undergoing treatment a priority for transfer. A spokesperson for mydentist confirmed that all patients had been notified of the closure in advance and that there would be no disruption to planned services and appointments.
At present, mydentist has released no further details about incidents or complaints about anti-social behaviour.
Anyone who was registered with Compton Road Dental Practice should be automatically transferred to the Chapeltown Road surgery, but if there are queries or concerns, patients are advised to contact mydentist directly. Nearby Jem Dental Care is also accepting new NHS patients.Join this Discussion
