So only when you need something do you find out how bad things really are.
Needed a dentist, got charged multiple times with a combination of NHS and private charges (because some dentists like to mix charges up). A tooth extraction virtually wholly under the NHS has now cost £120 because of having to go to different dentists i.e. the unification of healthcare is virtually non-existent.
Booked to see the doctor. 1 month waiting time apart from emergencies.
The charges are phenomenal. One dentist quoted £800 just to save a tooth.
Clearly the market is not saturated yet, and I think it would be great if Britain didn't actually deport professionals from countries like say India like it has done. Competition is a good thing. Take that away and people are cornered.
