The finding of the UK has become a dentist who receives the general tariff that is almost impossible and is more like a ‘Kabbous’ for many British, which leaves some of them only to resort to the private sector if they are able to bear its costs, while others prefer to dispense with medical care even If it was necessary.
Like the major crisis that affects the Public Health System in Britain (NHS), a large number of dentists abandon this public system in favor of private care institutions, which are more profitable and much higher.
“In 2024, it will be a ticket to attend a concert for Taylor Swift easier than getting an appointment with a dentist contracted with the National Health Services Authority.”
The British show a strong correlation with the National Health Services Authority, which allows them, whatever their income, by receiving medical surveillance and treatment for free, or in the case of dental care at low prices. However, according to a study conducted by the British Dental Association in 2022, 90% of dentists no longer accept new patients at public prices.
A poll conducted by the statistical “Ugov” in March 2023 showed that one in every 5 British was not registered in a private or public health institution.
For months, Danny White, who is an unemployed father, is struggling to find a dentist for himself and his wife who suffers from repeated abscesses, and his two daughters, one of whom grows behind her milky teeth, and the other needs a dental evaluation device.
White told the French Press Agency: ‘It is an absolute nightmare … as we are trying to continue to obtain a date for’ the younger daughter, but the three clinics in the city ‘were all canceled the registration of its patients in the National Health Services Authority’, and only special care is provided.
“This will cost us 400 pounds (507 dollars), only for the first advice (for all family members), without any treatment, ‘” added that this will cost us 400 pounds ($ 507), only for the first advice (for all family members), without any treatment,’ which is unable to incur this family, which is already struggling to pay the car loan. .
Similar to White, thousands of Britons find themselves in need of treatment, while the media and social networks are bored with the testimonies of people who had to travel hundreds of kilometers to find a dentist, or borrow money to pay the costs Extractions.
Mark Jones, a security adviser who launched 3 years ago, says “Without Teeth in England”: There are people who end up in the hospital due to excessive doses of pain relievers, and some die due to blood poisoning as a result of an unrivaled abscess or cancer in the mouth.
“Some people make their teeth themselves,” he explains, as it happened during the quarantine during the Kofid-19 pandemic, which witnessed the growing “home dental medicine ‘phenomenon”.
A service that approaches ‘the end’
The statements of the Organization for Cooperation and Development in the economic field showed that the United Kingdom includes 49 dentists per 100,000 people, which is the lowest rate among the Group of Seven. But ‘the problem does not lie in the lack of dentists, but rather the lack of dentists who choose to work in the National Health Services Authority, “according to Mark Jones.
The Nuffield Trust Research Center warned in a report on this topic in mid -December, that the dental services of the National Health Services Authority ‘are approaching the end of its life.
Gradually, a two -level system is formed; On the one hand, those who can afford the costs of treatment in the private sector, and on the other hand, there are members of the most humble groups who see their health deteriorating.
The President of the British Dental Association, Eddie Krauch, realizes that the situation is “shocking”, but he blames “investment shortages” by the state during the past ten years, as well as canceling a large number of health sponsors during the pandemic.
Kraosh also pointed out that a repair was made in 2006, according to which dental procedures are modified, which made it less attractive to dentists.
Currently, more than 70% of doctors provide treatments within the framework of the National Health Services Authority, and sometimes in very small quantities, according to a recent parliamentary report.
The Governor of the Conservatives promised a plan for the general dental system, whose annual budget is 3 billion pounds (3.8 billion dollars) for all of England.
Eddie Krauch believes that ‘above all, we need incentives to allow dentists to receive new patients’, meaning “additional reward” for complex treatments.
But there is also a need for solutions to address the ‘urgent need’ to suffer from patients, according to Mark Jones, who suggests the development of specialized mobile clinics and emergency care services in hospitals.
