"Now I have to pay for treatment "

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Clinical haematology

(as the patient),

I write in anger in relation to a letter received today from the Townhead Health centre in Glasgow in relation to dental treatment. I currently have to attend the Haemophilia Unit for treatment before I get dental treatment at the practice but today was advised I am now going to have to pay for treatment I think this is ridiculous as given I have to travel it is now going to cost me more, but today I am now going to have to find somewhere locally to get my treatment as I am not prepared to pay excessive costs when I am not on a high income it is shocking and they don't even give you details of the costs or even the letter has not been signed

Angry that given i attend the royal infirmary for clotting treatment i now have to pay for treatment just to get my dental given its still at the royal infirmary
