    Pensioner had to pull out her own teeth

    According to this article, from The Times, a pensioner confronted Blair on NHS dentists yesterday, saying that she had to pull out her own teeth:

    In a grilling by the public on Sky News, the Prime Minister said he was recruiting overseas dentists to fill the gaps. But Mrs Holsworth said: “We had three in Scarborough. The first went home with a criminal record, the second was not even qualified and the third made so many mistakes they sacked him.” Mr Blair, who promised in 1999 that everyone would be able to see an NHS dentist within two years, replied: “The problem is, I cannot suddenly just produce more dentists. We have to train them. We are actually opening new dental training schools and so on.

    They may have spent additional money on the NHS but it seems a lot of it, if not most, went to non-productive administrators rather than medical professionals.

    Yes, that certainly appears to be the case anonymous.
