Anybody know anything about this?
Went in for a check up today and paid the £18.50 band one charge upfront. Told I now need a filling which is band two at £50.50 which I've booked an appointment for next week.
How much should I be charged in total, £50.50 or £69.00?
I've read the NHS website but its not entirely clear in this situation...
If you have completed one course of treatment but you need another treatment, you do not have to pay again if:
•You need more treatment within the same or a lower charge band (such as another filling) within two months of completing a course of treatment. As long as you discussed the problem with the dentist during that time, they will try to fit you in as soon as possible. However, if they have to offer you a later appointment, you should not be charged again.
•You need repair work or a replacement for certain types of restoration within a year of the original work being done. You should return to the same dentist.
