I normally find reaching out from the gown and grabbing his Censored and squeezing gets the message across. Whistle

I find it highly unlikely he carried out a surgical procedure on you without your consent. A serious charge against him!


AKA you’re saying I am lying, perhaps for dramatic effect?

Not that I have to explain, but I went to the Dentist as one of my teeth was playing up giving me toothache. He examined me, told me he was taking an X-ray, then proceeded to what I thought was fill the tooth. I wasn’t told at any stage it was root canal work or indeed that he was filling it. Id not had that sort of procedure carried out before, so the whisps of smoke didn’t set off any alarms bells for me. It was only discovered that when I went to pay and it was on the invoice.

I quite like my dentist, been to him for years. If it needed done, fine. I don’t have a problem, but I certainly wasnt told, highly unlikely or not.

I’ve not accused anyone of lying,stop being dramatic.

1 You’ve had a medical procedure done on you without questioning why and what are the alternatives then what’s the long term prognosis and probable future treatment to the tooth is. Likely to be veneered crowned or extracted depending on the tooth.

2 Your dentist has carried out a surgical procedure on you without you say your consent? That’s assault and he has breached his codes of practice simples.This is a serious charge which the BDA could suspend or strike him off for.Now that’s dramatic.Hope the pain is better. Thumbs Up

Hardly dramatic, just being straight to the point as there seemed to be some disbelief it happened as stated. It what it is. It was a couple of years ago and I was grateful the discomfort stopped, end of.

Nationwide and their fundamental confusion over precisely what mobile banking should be.

Why the Censored Censored Censored Censored do I have to use the bloody card reader to amend a standing order *to another account that's already verified as being mine!*. Just exactly what risk do they think they're mitigating here?

Because of course we all carry out card readers with us, and or cards. Absolutely nobody simply users their phone for contactless payments these days Rolling Eyes

Security theatre. I could cheerfully bludgeon the Crohn's* that signed this policy off with a damp copy of FCA DISP.

+1 re Nationwide.

Started at a new school last week and, in the spirit of joining in, agreed to have a roll and bacon at Friday coffee. The teacher who organised wanted payment by bank transfer (£1.80) so that her own accounts are easy to manage.

No problem with that - she's organising it, so she calls the shots. I'll use my personal, sneaky Nationwide account (for once with £25 in it), rather than the joint account which SWMBO sees. But - no card reader, so can't set up the payment!!! I wouldn't enjoy the roll if I hadn't paid for it, so needed to use the main account.

Been sweating bullets all week in the fear that my transgression comes to light.....

I was thinking £1.80 for a bacon roll is pretty good!

I also tried to get my Hep A and typhoid jabs for travel at the end of June……….told by the doctor “ sorry we don’t do them any more”

WTF is going on.


So I finally got through to a private company that Glasgow NHS has contracted to do some work for them. you have a 15 min consultation asking your history and all the jabs you have ever had (can you really remember what you had as a kid?) and then at the end, the NHS will give you a call back in the next 7 days to arrange an appointment……..what a great system, surely your GP is best placed to know what your medical history is.

Is this not privatisation of the NHS?

On the school theme.... teaching unions.

Got an online questionnaire to complete to inform the union's response to the Scottish Government's pay offer. Granted, it's not much and I'd love to have more, but my response that we are relatively well paid, we typically get home before 5, have a half day on a Friday, got a good pension scheme, no one got furloughed or made redundant during Covid and we get 12 weeks' holiday a year fell on deaf ears.

I'll happilly take more money, but a bit of a reality check on what we get for what we do is in order. Sure, it's stressful - but my job before teaching was stressful too, and I only got 5 weeks' off.

Go and have a word with the school office staff, see how much of a pay rise they have had over the past 10 years or so and see what response you get!

Not saying that we're all in the same boat - I'd be happy for the support staff to get a higher pay award than teachers. Just saying that, on balance, I feel pretty well remunerated for the work I do. But fully appreciate that I'm probably in the minority.
