2023/24 Resolution Update

The resolution selection results are in!

This year there were over 95,000 individual selections cast by WI members and the most popular resolution, was Dental Health Matters.

The NFWI Board of Trustees has agreed to put this resolution forward to the Annual Meeting in June.

The wording of the resolution is as follows:

Dental Health Matters

There is a chronic shortage of NHS Dentists and people are suffering health issues as a result. The NFWI calls on the Government to increase investment in the training and retention of dentists and to review the current inadequate NHS contracts in order to ensure everyone can access an NHS dentist wherever they live.

What happens next?

WI Members now have the opportunity to learn more about the issue, and to discuss the resolution in their WIs before deciding how their delegate should vote at the Annual Meeting.
