Simple answer is yes. Your Dentist would charge you the NHS rate and make a referral. You then might need 2 hospital appointments. First one is an assessment only and then they book you in for the extraction. This could take two months before the extraction happens.

 

This is based on the extraction not being urgent. If it is urgent because of extreme pain, then it depends. The local dental hospital might have an arrangement for urgent referrals. If your dentist refuses to refer you and you don't trust the dentist, then contact the dental hospital direct.

Our local dental hospital operates a walk in service - no appointment needed - for those that need urgent treatment, assessed in the morning and treated in the afternoon. Find out how yours operate.

you can normally get it doen at a teaching hospital for free at fairly short notice. Worth considering if you need gold work doing as you only pay for ther gold, not the work

It depends on the area. The way it works around where I live is that the dentist makes the referral. It isn’t sent to a hospital but a centralised office who assess and then either bounce it back to the dentist (just because a patient demands does not mean that they are eligible for hospital treatment), sends it onwards to a specialist practice or for very difficult cases sends it on to the hospital. On the most part it’s a good system as it keeps the waiting list down for the difficult cases.

I can’t offer any specific advice about the process but if you have any concerns over the procedure then please do talk them through with your dentist, it could be that the dental hospital isn’t necessarily the best place for your treatment or that the dentist agrees with you and refers you urgently. Nevertheless it’s worth talking it through openly and airing your reasoning.

    • Somebody moved house last year and forgot to update their V5.   They have just received a demand for payment from DRP / ECP, who traced them to their new address.    The parking charge date was 12 Jan 2019.  The date of the demand was 11 April 2019.  No NTK was received.  BUT... this was likely sent to the old address, so there is no way of knowing whether this was delivered within the 14 day timeframe. (No windscreen ticket was issued).     I've researched here on CAG,  also on MSE, and I'm wondering whether the best course of action  is to:    1. Ignore it entirely 2. Request details of all mis-addressed correspondence from ECP, and attempt an appeal 3. Something else?   Also if this person took option 1, could it affect their credit rating (presuming it doesn't get taken to court)?    
    • Found email regarding meditation from scmreferrals@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk  in my spam folder sent on 3 April, thought I would receive letter send by post in this? Also had phone call last week I missed and discovered left a voicemail for me which made me check.   It states has to take place within 21 days of this email > is that including weekends or can it be counted as working days? So 21 days would give the date Thursday 2 May? Or is it out of reach now which I am worried about 21 days would be Wednesday 24 April.   Question 2 I cannot really say yes to anyways? As I have not received all documents from Lowell’s. Problem though is I have not sent 2nd request letter either :( 2. I can confirm that I have enough information about the claim to allow me to enter into negotiations and that I do not require any further evidence from the other party before I can mediate   Can I save this if I call them tomorrow? What should I do now so worried I would lose without a battle now and it’s just referred to county court and Lowell will stand strong?   Also I found old email from years back where Lowell offered 50 and 60% discounts on debt I feel so stupid now should I try settle with Lowell directly now instead to save it now? Or stand strong here I am not good with all this legal stuff.
    • Ok, thanks dx. When would be the best time to file it?
    • Thanks for the update dx - I was panicking about these 2 letters - rather than ignoring them like a few years ago - I thought I would try and be more proactive and sort them out much earlier. Will take your advice and wait for any further letters - thanks dx

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
