Desperate people line up for dental care as third day of queuing continues in Bristol


People line up outside Dentist as third day of queueing continues in Bristol

People are queueing for a third consecutive to register as NHS patients at a dental practice in Bristol.

Footage from Wednesday, 7 February, shows stagnant queues outside the practice.
