You're right, some consultants are so arrogant, very rude too. Some are just plain evil, bullying the juniors and whatnot. So many horror stories of bullying...I'm not sure about mistreatment of the public though, there's quite a strict policy on treatment of patients in Northern Ireland.
Keeping in mind that my dad is a consultant with the NHS

Yes, they are, undeservedly so.
They should not be arrogant towards patients, if it wern't for us, they wouldn't be in a job
The fact that I had to get my local MP involved to bring a consultant back down to earth, is pretty disgusting. Its so funny, she is still around, and since changing consultants my treatment has gone SMOOTHLY. When I had this woman as a consultant, she kept delaying, delaying - finding all sorts of reasons why treatment should not go ahead, I don't think she could handle the fact that a patient was questioning her decision making skills...Treatment could have finished 2 years earlier if it wasn't for that.
They can behave however they want with their peers.
My current consultant is great, he has listened to all of my concerns throughout treatment, and I only wish more of them were like that.
