Until now

I still have a UK dentist, but it's a private dentist so I don't see any problem with that...
I had a MRI scan done if France paid the full 120 euro in cash, would have cost 900 in the Uk privately-

He clearly thinks it's fine to illegally get treatment done in the UK for free, I am sure many people living in Spain have been doing exactly that with the purchasing power of the GBP droppining over the last 5 years.

Interesting thread Odile! now remind me what business did Swains work in....
I really dont think people in Spain would go back to the UK for treatment, as the medical treatment here is fantastic, i believe its far better than the Uk and Switzerland,

That sounds quite a lot they should be between 200-550 in the UK depending what type of scan
The French price is cheaper though...

I keep my UK dentist because he has given me good treatment for the last 10 years, not because he is cheaper...

When I had LASIK done in the UK (Yes privately) there was a English women who had flown in from Spain, so that view is not shared by all.
