I am in my 70s and am writing about something which recently happened to me in case it applies to anyone else.
My niece took her two-year-old to the dentist and I remembered that I'd not heard from my own dentist for sometime.
I used to get a card through the post to make an appointment.
My niece informed that you need to re-register every year.
I had never heard of this so I went to my dentist of 40 years and was told that I was no longer a patient and they were full up. No-one ever told me of this change.
I know such things happen in England but I thought not here. How do you find out where dentists accept NHS patients?
I went to Drum Law for advice.
They had moved to Garscadden House. They used to have a walk-in service on a Wednesday so I went on that day.
I was given a card to fill in to get an appointment. When do these changes take place and why does no-one inform the public?
I regularly buy the Clydebank Post and it and the Drumchapel News is where I get my information from and how else can I become aware of changes?
