STP Application Question - is it fine to mention this?

I am currently applying for the 2024 STP, and I view my undiagnosed medical condition as a motivator for me to become a clinical scientist, because I know how much it affects me on a day to day basis and I want to help people avoid this and actually get a diagnosis for better quality of life. However, would it be seen as a slap in the face to the NHS if I emphasise my condition being undiagnosed? I may be overthinking, but I don't want to give off the impression that I think the NHS is useless, and decrease my chances of getting in.
