Contrasting the cases of a morbidly overweight woman and a lady with leukaemia
Just as the Daily Mail reported that £100,000 was spent to ‘rescue’ a 60-stone woman from a house in Wales, a lady diagnosed with leukaemia issued a tear-jerking heartfelt plea in The Guardian begging the NHS to help her.
The contrast between the respective plights of these two women is telling of the lottery that is British healthcare and that an obese woman has secured priority over a mother with leukemia is frankly disgraceful.
No decent person would deny that 22-year old Georgia Davis needs assistance in her efforts to beat obesity but that a 40-strong team of builders, scaffolders and emergency service workers were sent to take her hospital whilst 40-year old Stacie Lewis has been left “in the dark, waiting…” for news about whether she will get a second bone marrow transplant is simply tragic. These paradoxical cases bring shame upon our nation and are signal that is time that the NHS reassessed its priorities.
