Today’s prompt: Most people who live with a chronic illness end up with a lot of experience when it comes to dealing with healthcare. How would you improve or change your healthcare experience? What would you like to see happening during medical visits with your healthcare team? How about when dealing with your health insurance companies? What’s your Healthcare Wish List or Biggest Frustration? Today is the day to share it all!
As it’s still May 19th in the Baker Islands, I reckon I can just about get away with writing this day 4 post now. I’ve written on this topic more than once on the blog and in other places, and it’s been an experience interacting with the UK healthcare system. You’ll sense, if you read through them, a level of frustration with how the UK operates and many aspects of the system. Looking back I realise that I’ve written far more than I had thought and it’s kind of disturbing!
