Record View: Dirty practice.

THE dentist's surgery is usually where patients get a lecture in hygiene.

But at John Halliday's practice in Inverness, it seems it was he who needed the lessons.

More than 3000 of his patients have been offered tests for HIV and hepatitis after a colleague claimed that Halliday used dirty instruments.

As usual with the medical professions, their union has circled the wagons and Halliday has not been struck off or suspended but has 'agreed' to stop practising.

If he treated just one patient with dirty instruments, that should be enough to stop him from practising ever again.
