Drillers or Gougers?
It's good old rip-off Ireland time again. This time it is about MEDICINE.
Some 88% of Irish people say that they trust their doctors - but should they trust the Medical Profession generally? It would seem not!
A recent survey published by Avantis Health, who, it should be said, have a vested interest because they promote overseas medicine, indicates that up to 70% savings over Irish prices can be made by Irish people if they get the hell out of Ireland and have their Dental or Medical procedures elsewhere.
I personally can verify that it is no problem to save 50% on dental procedures - and that includes travel, accommodation etc.
The survey also showed that, even in Rip-Off Ireland, by carefully shopping around people can get 30% better prices.
So haggle with your dentist or physician, and shop around for medicines, the Internet has specialist chemists, several in the UK, and I can vouch the prices are much cheaper and the products a well known brands.. Do please make every effort to get the 70% savings - the more Irish people that go abroad for medical procedures, the greater incentive for Irish Medicine to get real, and to clean up it's act.
