A French comparison


Sir, – Just back from a visit to western France during which family members required visits to a doctor and dentist. The charges paid bear comparison to what would be levied here. Private GP practice consultation: France €27. Dublin €50-60. Dentist (consultation, X-ray and extraction): France €41. Dublin approximately €130. Enough said. – Yours, etc,
