Find Me A Dentist
Because teeth hurt! Scans the NHS database for dentists near your postcode for the nearest that is currently accepting new patients.
Techie notes: because the NHS service seems to use national grid references rather than latitude/longitude, we geolocate the postcode using the Yahoo geocoding API and turn the returned lat/long into grid references using a hacked together perl script.
