I’ve just been to the vets. My dog needs dental surgery, but unless it’s an abscess, they don’t regard it as an emergency, and they’re only open for emergencies. They’re doing phone consultations, and prescribing meds, so I paid over the phone and went at a pre-booked time to collect. They had traffic cones blocking the surgery door, and I had to phone them to open the door. They left the meds on a bench for me.
My niece’s boyfriend is a dentist. He’s now doing 3 days a week (on full pay), emergencies only. He says he may get drafted into the Covid fight at some point, as he’s also a qualified pharmacist (he has fitted in a lot of career in his 26 years on the planet). He works for the UK NHS.
