Statement: Water Fluoridation
South Central Strategic Health Authority (SHA) is pleased that following today’s judgement the legal process has now concluded.
Throughout this time the SHA Board has remained satisfied that water fluoridation at one part per million is a safe and effective way to tackle tooth decay in the Southampton area, and that the health benefits outweighed all other arguments against water fluoridation, including the level of support and opposition.
The process of adding fluoride to the water in Southampton and south west Hampshire will now continue as planned. It is likely to be several months before the necessary plant and machinery is constructed, operational and ready to commence the process of adding fluoride to the water supply.
