NHS and 'diagnosis'

I think that this failure, which has many parallels in the US, is simply
from the unique position that doctors have in many cultures. The assumption
is that doctors are all-knowing, incapable of making a mistake, and
incapable of any moral or objective wrongdoing. Thus, the problems that
emerge must derive from that convenient group of "others", or the 'system'.
Just came from my annual Medicare 'preventative care' appointment, with
good health history, review of blood labs and urinalysis, and not one
second of 'laying on of hands'. No listening to the heart, the chest, no
peek into my mouth, ears or nose, etc. And somehow I let that happen...
