"Not much help"

About: Charles Clifford Dental Hospital

I rang today when i got home from a 24 hr shift for an emergency appointment to be told they dont do emergencies and told to ring back in the morning for an appointment for friday but was told IF they can fit me in. So that means really it will probably be next week but an absess wont understand it has to wait and over dosing on painkillers .
