I think if doctors were bothered about getting sued, they’d be more conscientious and do something to help us. I think the opposite is true, nobody bothers to sue them, so where’s the risk ? There’s obviously very little internal monitoring, so basically, if they turn up for work, listen to the patient, dish out a few pills (so long as the pills aren’t harmful) they get paid regardless, whether what they have done for the patient is successful or not. There is no incentive to cure us, or even attempt to lessen our symptoms, they just carry on regardless, knowing they are on a win:win. The system is all wrong!
They ought to have to complete some kind of feedback e.g.
Patient X reports symptoms a,b,c,d,e,f,g they were given XXX drug and symptoms are gone
Patient X reports symptoms a,b,c,d,e,f,g they were given XXX drug and d,e,f, symptoms persist,
therefore given ZZZ drug and referred to Cardiologist
and so on and so forth until ALL symptoms are dealt with.
Certainly something better than what we have now!
