Re: Age-Related Difficulties

Missing, presumed dead.

I broke a tooth this week and wanted an appointment at a dentist I had registered with. I don't believe in that nice little earner called "checkups" so I had only registered because I had a clicking jaw issue and I had to be referred to a hospital specialist by a dentist. Of course, they managed to find a filling which needed replacing.

Anyway, that was in 2012. Having not attended since, I had been de-registered. So, for NHS treatment, I have to re-register, taking my NHS number and bus pass, passport, or whatever. (I think they meant to include credit card, as this ins unlikely to be totally free). The first appointment for a "new" NHS patient is on 1 April! Am am not in paint, so no hurry.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
