Recalling Dr Skinner's World Thyroid Register... where I now think formal representation is due across the board, but especially for chronic illnesses and where the thyroid is another ball game altogether. We need protection - please will someone seek to set this up? I'm too ill now...
Having had the decency [or stupidity] to seek 'In-House Resolution' in 2021 re a catalogue of long-term abuses via a GP, I was immediately met with his 'Legal Beagle Protection', guiding him through it all to swat aside any patient. We have no such protection. Lots of apologies. Lots of retractions with letters out to relevant Hospital Departments but... who reads them and mud always - BUT ALWAYS - sticks!
Any agency set up to protect Patient Rights... ultimately, 'calls to the tune of their taskmaster'. We have no rights, as such, in these times and never have had. In this 21st C - where much of the 'care' seems to have gone from medicine [especially chronic issues] - we too need something for ourselves.
Just a thought. xox💚❤️💛🔍
Hmm, seems there's more of a problem than I envisaged!
