how would you improve these?

(1) messing up complaints (according to some doctors i know, the complaints system might as well not exist)

the nhs doesnt take complaints seriously

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ile-staff.html

i know the daily mail is right wing but the facts are still correct

http://www.theguardian.com/society/2...view-ann-clwyd

http://www.theguardian.com/healthcar...in-better-care

(2) whistleblowers get bullied

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...r-readers.html

(3) SOME rude staff who dont listen even re: serious problems and in worse case bully patients who are elderly/critically ill

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...hord-many.html

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...ON-THOMAS.html

(4) denying problems mentioned by jeremy hunt etc.

the nhs ignores problems, not just in responding to complaints/shutting up whistleblowers but also stuff like the selfies posted in response to Jeremy Hunt's saying that consultants should work longer. yes we all appreciate those doctors but most of those were junior doctors ffs.

(5) too many people/underfunding

the government should fund more

At my local NHS surgery they do. I had a blood test taken in 2013 which had to be retaken as apparently the file with my results (both online and the physical copy) got 'lost'. Eight months ago, I went in to my local hospital for a operation only to be sent home and told that they had accidentally confirmed that the operation was to go ahead: in reality they had no beds so I had to wait another 8 weeks. This seems to happen a lot to other people too. Cases of miscommunication that literally waste money and time.

sorry to hear, OP doesn't mention miscommunication though?

How would you deal with those problems

Maybe a system whereby it's easier to contact doctors in charge of your bloods tests etc. I'm not entirely sure. All I know is that this current system is a bit of a joke.

Cba trawling through all those articles but imo...

Health and Social care i.e. Keeping people well in the community and looking after people with pre-existing conditions

Mental Health

Children's health

The fact that health care varies so greatly over the course of the week and more people die at the weekend

To be honest, that's not just the NHS. Universities do this all the time, as do schools. My friend's mum is a teacher who works in a state school where there is widespread cheating in that coursework drafts which are only meant to be marked a certain number of times (usually 2/3) before the final piece is submitted are marked up to 15 or 20 times. She brought the issue up with the head and said that she feels uncomfortable doing the same as it's cheating. The head basically brushed the issue under the carpet without actually doing anything about it or reprimanding the teacher's involved in the breach of assessment guidlines..
