After viewing the clinic and meeting staff  Eastleigh’s MP Chris Huhne said:

“This is a fantastic new facility for the people of Eastleigh.  We have spent quite a few years campaigning to make sure local people could have better access to NHS dentistry and this is  great credit to the local PCT. Genix Healthcare is a good partner that is able to deliver a first class service and take on a significant number of new NHS funded patients.  Apprenticeships is something close to my heart and I am delighted to see Genix making such a major commitment to train young people in our area.”

        The caption is already there, a famous quote from Marilyn Monroe, which reads

        “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

        One thing we do know about Chris Huhne, is that he’s not boring…

          You obviously haven’t sat through his speech on retrofitting social housing stock.

    It comes across as more sincere (albeit perhaps a little serious) that he was not smiling as his eyes do not smile in this photo.

    Sorry RDS but a ‘thank you’ isn’t enough to justify a link to your dental practice.
    You can use a link – you just need to make a contribution to the thread.
