James Cooil currently has a contract with The Leicester Area Team to provide orthodontics on the NHS for children. The funding of the contract only allows a limited number of patients to be assessed and treated every year.
This applies to all practices throughout the country. The NHS contract only allows us to treat patients with a moderate to severe treatment need under the guidelines issued by the government.
As a result some patients will not be eligible for NHS treatment and once the NHS budget has been used for the current year there will be a waiting list for patients who are eligible for treatment if they wish to take this route. Under these circumstances we are able to provide affordable private options.
