The following story is an illustration of what private provision of health care in the NHS could look like.

For many years I went to the same dentist: Kelvin House on Nelson Road.

That ended just over three years ago, when staff told me that they could no longer treat me as an NHS patient. Either I was to go private with them, or I had to find a new dentist.

I chose the latter and signed on as a patient at The Whitstable Dental Centre on Oxford Street.

The provision there is perfectly good and affordable under NHS arrangements. I have no complaints. But the problem isn’t with my teeth: it’s with my gums.
