Any competent medics want to tell me how to not be shit?
How well you're doing mostly depends on your allies skill level. If they now when to push, when to fall back, how to protect the medic and listen to voice commands, your job will be a lot easier.
If you're not that good at medic, you should find servers with good players, that'll help you get better a lot faster than if you're playing with bad people.
Just try to figure out who is a good player, then uber that guy, you're more likely to make more use of your uber if you uber a guy who knows how to handle them.
Don't be afraid if ubering early or running away when your uber is about to run out. An early uber is better than no uber, and an alive medic is better than a dead medic, even if it means your patient dies.
If you end up wasting the uber for what ever reason, don't feel bad. It generally doesn't mean that much in pubs. Just remember that healing people who are damaged or isn't overhealed charges your uber faster than healing a guy with full overheal.
Also try to keep everyone at an even health level. If you find multiple people who are hurt and screaming for you to heal them. Heal them a little and then heal the next guy, keep doing that till everyone is at full health. More people are likely to survive if you suddenly get rushed while you're trying to get everyone at full health. It will also keep everyone happy and people are less likely to call you a bad medic because you're not healing them.
If people die when you're healing them, a lot of people will blame the medic for their mistakes, just ignore those people. Most of the time, it isn't the medics fault.
