Expect higher prices to keep solvent, or close down. Unlikely to recoup the losses, some have dug deep into their savings because they have not been eligible for government funds. Our village businesses have good patronage, the pub is the only worry. Most are now card only, looks like we may be 'cashless' within a few years.

Our dentist is an independent so not as expensive as private. £13 for a check up & check up & filling is £62. I paid the former as did Daughter.

The nearest dentist to me charges £87 for a consultation - anything more than a basic filling and you are talking between £200 -£500.

Sorry for going off topic.

That is an astronomical price. Aren't there any NHS dentists near you? Probably a daft question as they are now like rocking horse poo.
We were lucky to get our dentists with the NHS & keep them & when they went independent stayed with them.

Rocking horse poo is correct. Too many people and not enough NHS dentists.

Re: Hairdressers

No salons here seem to be ‘opening’ yet, for taking appointments. I don’t know if owners are having telephone numbers transferred, because there are several near me that I could use, but all still closed. So who are getting appts and how?!

Hi Jazzi, I am lucky as I said earlier, because my mobile hairdresser text me to say when she was working again.

The salons are still closed at the moment, but I thought
were all re-opening on the 4th July too?

Have a look at this, see if it's any help:

Re: Hairdressers

My hairdressers are opening (all being well) on Saturday however the wait is over 3 months as those who had appointments prior to lockdown have priority. Looks like I'm going to be growing my hair out for a little while longer.

Sorry Jazzi, I didn't know that else I wouldn't have sent you the link. Hope you get sorted soon.

Re: Hairdressers

Great news! I've had a call from my hairdresser, they will be opening on Monday 6th July and I'm booked in for the 10th July!

I feel so much better knowing that!
