Speaking up or against something can have significant risks and our guest tomorrow did just that. Concerned about the quality of care at the NHS, he lifted the lid on the circa 50,000 patients that are misdiagnosed every year!
There’s no doubt that the NHS and hardworking staff do an incredible job across the UK, but with inadequate funding and assessment, mistakes and errors around misdiagnosis are commonplace throughout the country. The NHS treats around 243 million patients a year and though the error rate is low, the misdiagnoses that do occur can lead to unfortunate and severe ramifications.
In today’s episode, Rajan stays in (mainly due to tier 4 restrictions :)) England to speak with Dr Umesh Prabhu, a former Senior Consultant and Paediatrician within the NHS who speaks openly about what really has been going on behind closed hospital doors, the reality of Covid-19 and the things you need to know to stay alive! Today’s podcast is eye-opening and revealing to say the least!
