"I missed a few appointments here too so they let me use the drop-in service instead," Aaron says. "I knew I could come in between 11.30 to 12.30pm and be seen."

He has Asperger's Syndrome, and struggles with the concept of time.


Erm, clearly not that much of a struggle if he can cope with the concept of turning up between 11.30 and 12.30


And then further down the article:
 

Asylum seekers only have access to primary care and not to mental health services. GPs at the Whitehouse can prescribe anti-depressants and provide a little counselling.

"We can't do as much as a specialist could do. It's about maintaining the patient at a certain level," says Joshua Lumb, the practice manager.

"Mental health services won't see asylum seekers until they have leave to remain. One reason is that it would be hard to get to the heart of the patient's problem while there is this uncertainty about their status hanging over them."

Patients who are new to the country often struggle with basic English, and the centre uses a telephone interpreting service available on the NHS. The system "is not great but is what's available", according to Miller.

My ex hated my habit of collecting my urine in pint bottles until I used them to build a water clock.

She left me about 3879 pints ago.

It's all a case of not valuing what you don't pay for. At the dental clinic where I work, most of the dnas are people who are exempt from paying because they're on benefits. The people who have to pay generally attend.
