Can’t get a dentist? Blame the Tory Brexit

The most amazing part of this is that it probably isn’t part of a Tory NHS privatisation plan but is more likely to be an accident because Boris Johnson doesn’t understand his own Brexit.

It turns out that the UK’s chronic shortage of dentists is at least partly due to the fact that, since Brexit happened, the UK will not accept practitioners from the European Union because their qualifications don’t count.

I’m not going to go into the details but you’ll get the gist by following the link below.

Renata has qualified as a dentist both in Brazil and in Italy, in the EU. The UK needs dentists, but does not accept her qualifications.

    I find myself strangely fortunate. I live somewhere that the population has been dropping for decades where we need more people but it means we have overprovision of everything – housing, schools, dentists and doctors. Much of the overprovision is or has been shut down but there has never been issues getting access to these things. The initial problem that causes this – underprovision due to excess demand – has been due to decades of ‘rationalisation’ where work kept being centralised away from some areas, particularly the North and Scotland to a few areas in the South. This has lead to a spiral of demand, underprovision, need for imported specialists and increasing demand for and prices in housing.

    If only there was some way to address problems like this..
