Today’s Ratings and Advice 29/06/15

Ron RobinsonThe plans for a quiet day were scuppered when Karen developed a severe toothache, which resulted in us being legally mugged by the NHS.

I rang the hotline they have set up when out of hours dental emergencies arise and they booked her in for a 1-00pm appointment at a clinic in Birkenhead. I was told on the phone a fee, payable only in cash, of £18.80 had to be paid. No problem with that.

We arrived on time, Karen had to complete two forms, one consenting to treatment and we waited for her call.

When handing those forms in she had to pay that £18.80 before being seen….now I thought that was strange because what if she required treatment? Wouldn’t that add to that bill?

She was duly called, went in, the dentist asked her what the problem was, she hit a couple of her teeth with a medical implement and, getting no painful response simply said, “you need to attend your own dentist as they have all your records”. Two minutes, no pain relief, no advice other than that mentioned and £18.80 lighter.

Can that be legal?

TODAY

I have started rating every single all-aged handicaps, even those containing 3-y-o’s. I have added no text to these because I my self will be monitoring them for the next week to see the results produced. It should be interesting.

Those 3-y-o’s that top my figures will be expected to “perform”.

I have again highlighted the 3-y-o’s in bold/italic and in the TOP RATED section below have indicated which of the top rated are 3-y-o’s…(3).

In total we have nine rated races and four of them will be worked with at this end.

Then we have to try and get an appointment at our own dentist.
