General Practitioner, you may get an appointment if you don't work early or if you don't work at all. All appointments are taken from 8:30-8:35, after a long phone wait, before they are all gone.
Access to dentistry IMPOSSIBLE. There is a waiting list of more than 6000 patients (I am not missing any zero) for the NHS attention.
Schools all with more pupils than what they are designed to have.
Good luck

I made an app for iPhone, and it may be helpful, or not, I don’t know. The app allows you to compare the prices of supermarkets in the UK.
As it searches directly in their websites, you can save a list and update the prices in a different day.

Here is the link:

It’s free.
