Now we are sure most
dentists are honourable professionals who do their best for their patients teeth
and forgo personal profit but we all know if you are paid to operate surgeons
will operate whether the operation is medically (or dentally) necessary or not.
One of our attached medical
students a good few years ago said that in their country obstetricians said
that babes born by Caesarian section were more intelligent. They went on to
explain that there were few trained midwifes in their country and so rather than attend a long labour
the obstetricians prefer to do an operation because it was quicker and they
Needless to say this young
doctor to be thought the NHS was a much better system because patients weren't
being ripped off.
Of course we are also sure
that no patient registered with a non NHS dentist will be forced to pay a
monthly health insurance to remain registered for we know that if we charged
our patients a £ 100 a year just to be registered, less than a TV license or a
gym membership fee, we would earn more per year than we do by working full
time. Any additional work like seeing patients for an additional fee would
greatly increase our earnings towards dentist levels. If it works so well for
dental care why not extend it from general dental practice to general practice?
But do not think as GP
patients you do not get completely unnecessary treatment from your GP as well.
They are called the annual QOF "checks" that diabetic, asthmatics and
other Party defined disease sufferers get called in for. The only difference is
that in contrast to a dentist doing work that will cost you the only thing you will
lose for medically unnecessary work is your time.
Praise be to the Party for
its continued commitment to make the NHS ever better. They are doing so well
especially in the leader of the pack NHS dentistry. Well done lads and lasses
and keep smiling or more likely laughing :)).
Contact Northern Doc:
Northern Doc was once a blog originally written by a group of GPs in Northernshire and expressed their experiences and frustrations of working in today's NHS. The pieces were compiled at social meetings after work and published anonymously in a once free society. Following the Government's Medical Council clamp down on freedom of thought, speech and expression by doctors and our belief that the views of a few doctors DO NOT represent the views of the profession as a whole their views will now be written by and published by a journalist who has previously contributed to the blog by virtue of social ties. Any inference that the word Doc means a doctor is now purely coincidental. This is as of the 22 April 2013.
