Allyson Pollock – is she apocryphal too?

Ha! Is Professor Allyson Pollock as apocryphal as The Witch Doctor?

Surely not!

Could it all be true, then?

GP’S COULD BECOME AS HARD TO FIND AS NHS DENTISTS

“The consequences for patients could be dire, said Professor Pollock, head of the Centre for International Public Health Policy at Edinburgh University. She added: “You’re going to see far fewer GPs per head of population, many more nurses and lesser-trained staff and you’re going to get decreased access to GPs.”

Asked if problems hitting NHS dentistry would spread to doctors, she said: “I think the parallel is an absolute fit … where people have no access to NHS dentistry or when they do, they find they have payments, charges, top-ups.”
