Dental Care Inflation With The N H S

Recommended Posts

Previously, a check-up was £5.84 but now falls into the £15.50 bracket. The new system is better value
if
you get lots of things seen to in one go. A single filling has jumped in price from £9.20 to £42.40 but the charge will be the same if you have several done at the same time.
Dentists have taken to promoting insurance plans to cope with the new charges. Dentist David James has launched Dencover, a dental insurance policy. He says: ' NHS costs have gone up significantly. People who did not think about getting treated privately are now considering it because the NHS charges are often comparable for simple procedures. Either way, people a realising they need to provide for dental bills.'

Insurance plans make money--Curries like to sell one with everything you buy. Looks like the NHS under NuLabour is yet another sham. I wonder if such a non-discretionary should be in Gordon's miraculous CPI basket? :angry:

EVERYTHING is going up RB, question is, when will people wake up to it and start demanding the wage inflation to pay for it and put the wind up the BOE ????????

I am 100% certain Merv is alive to what is going on and his next speech will probably throw some sarcastic remarks at Gordon's miracle CPI basket. In fact, Merv may just ignore even mentioning the CPI altogether to give it the contempt it is due. With only 37% of people believing Gordon has been the orchestrator of our short term prosperity based on borrowing his political star is fading and the knives will start to come out. Merv knows recession is on the way and that may stay his hand on IR but I do think the BoE will be a little more independently minded from now on, despite Gordon's 2 stooges taking their seats at the next meeting. We could see a 6-3 split next time.
