Dentist refused to see patient until end of day. Why? He's HIV positive. upheld complaint AND found it was a general policy. Often reported, rarely litigated ā€“ you can support our client's fight against dentist's here:
I need your support to bring a challenge against a dentist practice that discriminated against me because I am HIV positive and breached confidentiality about my HIV status.

NHS Policy is absolutely spot on. No refusal of treatment, just making sure that the many are considered. Another of Owens bandwagons!

Furthermore, dental equipment does not need to be sterilised twice after being used on a patient with HIV, as standard sterilisation measures combat the risk of transmission to another patient, therefore those with the condition don't need to be seen later on in the day.

Do dentists see Hepatitis patients at the end of the day as well? Iā€™d agree the staff talking in a public place is out of order. Although distressful for the complainant I suspect the dentist was thinking of their care of duty to all their patients. Is time now discriminatory?

The fact is that under the Equality Act 2010, it is illegal for a dentist to treat a person differently because they have HIV, and rightly so.

Get Burnham on board. As S of S 4 Health he took dentistry out of once 'comprehensive' NHS and handed it over to the market. He owes us.
