and another in Inveraray who was downright dangerous...I have signed various petitions to have him removed from the post after he refused to treat people he didn't like, and misdiagnosed multiple people.
Petitions are great but if you asked every person who wanted to sign the petition to submit a letter of complaint to the relevant person in the NHS the outcome would be different and quicker.Ksysia
I've never really heard of any problems concerning female health care in Britain and believe me I would if it happened often. I missed one smear appointment and they badgered me relentlessly until I made a new one, for example.
My sister had an abnormal result form a smear and she was dealt with very well, Amathyst has no complaints from her own scary ordeal. The system here is good, very, very good and we don't let people suffer.
What is the issue with midwifery? Midwifes here are specialised in their fields and often doctors take their advice as good and there are no issues. So is that problem that we say "this is your midwife" rather than "this is your doctor"?
Interestingly, although it must have happened, I have never personally dealt with one complaint against a midwife.
