After severe illness, a serious gum conditions had dramatically deteriorated - literally, teeth were falling out; telephone periodontal, explain the problem, they tell me get a referral...the only dentist available at short notice is private; after exam, they tell me what i know already and contacts BDH immediately; they then write to me telling them that BDH will not see me because i had not cared properly for my condition. And anyway, they cannot afford to take on a patient. BDH told me only that i needed a referral - did not tell me i would be punished for being ill - it knew how urgent my situation was. PALS merely supported everything that BDH had done, tho i explained that very severe illness had accelerated the problem, not stupidity, not laziness, not poor hygiene, PALS support of the spiteful actions of the hospital, irrespective of the health and financial costs to myself - is the most sickening aspect of this whole vile mess.
