Overview of current emergency services
For emergencies outside our normal opening hours, please attend:
Relief of Dental Pain Clinic Belfast City Hospital (RODP)
A Relief of Dental Pain Service is available to anyone who requires emergency dental care. It operates at the Dental Out-patients Department Wing F, Outpatients Department on the Ground Floor of the Belfast City Hospital.
From 1 February 2013
Monday to Friday: Evening Sessions (1 session per day) - 7.00pm to 10.00pm
Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays:
2 Sessions per day - 10.00am to 1.00pm, and 7.00pm to 10.00pm
This will replace the previous system of three sessions per day with one dentist on weekends and bank holidays.
There will now be two dentists providing treatment on all sessions in RODP. This will also include a process of triage to ensure the patients who require treatment urgently are seen as a priority, the remaining patients will be seen in order of the time of arrival at the clinic.
Patients should attend as early in a session as possible and bring their medical card. Only emergency or relief of pain treatment will be provided and normal Health Service charges will apply to those who are not exempt. No appointment is required.
