    Dangerously Incompetent There is a culture at this practice of rushing through
    appointments: the priority is to get you out in 10 min, rather than attempt to
    diagnose and deal with health issues. They simply don't listen and they don't care. It was my experience that the GPs were
    unwilling to accept the limitations of their expertise when it comes to complex
    diseases; they are no more than general practitioners, yet will not provide
    specialist referrals when clearly out of their depth. In addition, I found them
    patronising, arrogant and condescending. I tried 3, just to make sure I wasn't dealing
    with a dud, but they were all the same. I felt that my health was at risk while registered here; it
    was only after I left that I realised just how much danger I was in  I was rushed
    through the system for an urgent operation within 3 weeks and also given specialist
    referrals for diseases this lot had failed to pick up. The problem for taxpayers is that no one is accountable for
    failures by NHS GPs: not the PCTs, neither the Dept of Health. The Health
    Service Ombudsman is not obliged to investigate service failures, so that
    leaves NHS GPs such as those at Streatham High Practice to act with impunity;
    in short, they know they can get away with withholding care. The UK NHS is a
    system that essentially rewards failure. If I'd made such serious professional errors
    in my job as this lot, I'd have been sacked without a doubt.
