BBC News reports a record increase in complaints about the NHS. As I have written several times in this blog, since nothing is ever done about NHS Complaints (see
Cruelty, Clinical Negligence and the Abuse of Power in the NHS,
Complaints in Hospitals,
NHS Complaints Procedures Exposed and
The politics of salt consumption and powerful vested interests)
it is almost inevitable that complaints will continue to increase. If you read the individual comments beneath the BBC report you will see further examples of the futility of making a complaint about the NHS. Doctors and dentists are a law unto themselves and consider themselves inviolate against complaints made by patients. I sincerely believe that they and the rest of the NHS do far, far, far more harm than good.
