"Public versus Private"

About: Broomfield Hospital

I, personally, think that a consultant at Broomfield Hospital should be NHS only, if the consultant at the hospital is also involved in 'another' private establishment he/she will be inclined in trying making a consultation 'speedy'. This is particular the case for dermatology, psosiaris for example, psosiaris is sorted in different groups, however when I was seen by a skin specialist at Broomfield hospital, the consultant did not asked me any questions (for example do I suffer from rhumatism) he just sent me for UV treatment that did not worked! This unnecessary treatment probably costs the NHS few pennies, leaving me still poorly in mind and body. To all consultants: diagnosis is the 1st step, keep this in mind.
