I am becomming more and more annoyed by some peoples experience of treatment by NHS personnel. Sometimes I feel that we may be too accomodating of professional bad practice! I think it may because we 'appear' to have the NHS 'free' when we are getting treatment. We really should remember that we are in fact paying a lot of money through many different channels of tax...they are not doing us a favour...or working out of a sense of charity. Everyone in the NHS is getting paid a salary to deliver a professional health care service...in the GP's & Consultant's case, a hell of a lot of tax money. We are not an inconvience nor a bunch of charity cases and should expect a decent level of service. OK, rant over.
