2019 National Retired Members Conference
30 May 2019

This Conference recognises that older people find it difficult to afford the cost of National Health Service (NHS) dental care. Regular dental checks can detect other more serious medical conditions, such as oral cancer and heart disease, and, as such, act as preventative health screening. Conference, therefore, calls upon the National Retired Members’ Committee to pursue and campaign, with other relevant bodies, for the provision of free NHS dental services for people of pensionable age.
