Welcome to the forum. Your story sounds just like my idea of what national health care would be like if the US government tried to run it. IBS doesn't cause bleeding, pus and scarring from old ulcers. You absolutely have IBD and should be receiving appropriate treatment. I don't know what the recourse is under your system, but my philosophy is that everyone has a boss. If the doctor in the clinic is incompetent, he or she has a supervisor. Try to talk to them. If you haven't had a referral to a GI consultant yet, you need one. If you make a big enough nuisance of yourself, usually the doctor will refer you on just to get you off his caseload.
Do whatever you have to do - talk to supervisors, talk to your local or national government representatives, call the newpapers or television networks, camp in the clinic waiting room. You have a debilitating disease that can also be a pre-cancerous condition, and it sounds like if you don't advocate loudly for yourself, you're going to get shoved to the corner and ignored.
My best wishes will be with you. I wish I could be there to make a scene on your behalf and get you some attention.
