"5 year old tooth filling"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

We have been waiting for 6 weeks now to get an appointment after our dentist has referred my boy to get a tooth filling. My boy has on the autistic spectrum so he needs to be put on anaesthetic to deal with his teeth. Finally I received a letter which number to call to make appointment and I was told there was no appontment at all! My boy is in pain. We have tried to go private but it would cost us more than £1000. It is crazy. We saw our dentist on 17/05 and till now still no appointment offered or made!
