Surely not fair

My dentist surgery has gone private. Not just one or two dentists but the whole bloody lot of them.

So what do I pay my national insurance for?
Have I/will I see a drop in my national insurance payment?

What do the people in my area do if they can not afford to go private? There are no NHS dentists taking on new clients so the only option is not to go.

Not really promoting a healthy option.

Discuss.

    NHS dentists are totally free are they? If so I have a private dentist. It's not that expensive though I wouldn't worry too much...unless I do have an NHS dentist and you have to pay for them...then you can worry :p

    Don't worry, I'm sure false teeth are gonna be fashionable soon.

    I don't think its fair at all :no:

    Like you say, what are people supposed to do if they can't afford to go private?

    Do you have another NHS dentist near you?

    No they're not totally free. But they are cheaper. So now because of the money grabbing bastards I've got to pay £40 for a check-up. :eek2:

    What is the point of me paying the N.I. anymore?

    Are other NHS provided services going to go private? Am I gonna be rushed into hospital one day with a heart attack to find I got to pay for it?
