    Hi Everyone

    Well now I know I should have been a dentist!

    Last night I had toothache, and haven't been to the dentist in ages, so I thought I need to do something about this, After ringing round about six dentists all they could offer me was to go on a waiting list to become a private patient. No good I thought, I can't even eat my lunch properly.

    I got "lucky" and found a private one (forget about getting in on the NHS - it ain't happening) that would see me on Wednesday afternoon. As I don't work Wednesdays I tought great. The cost is £65 for an initial check up, and then the charge is dependent upon the time for any treatments.

    The time charge - a mere £42.50 for every 15 minutes of treatment! Not a bad hourly rate hey?

    You can't really blame the dentists.

    They were doing x amount of work by the NHS and being paid just a little over x for it.

    No-one can do that long term, can they? Oh hold on, we're all pharmacists aren't we? perhaps we can.

    Or perhasp we shoudl follow their lead and stop doing NHS work!

      Interesting thought, but how would we make a living if we stop NHS work?

            If we all stood up for ourselves. Just wait for the outcry that all the OAPs have to pay a private fee! That would scare Blair! :twisted:
