Don’t get me wrong. I love the NHS. And the govenment is trying to get rid of the post code lottery. We now have a system called ‘choose and book’ giving us a choice as to which hospital we want to go to for example.
It is just that there is a lot of health things not available on the NHS. There is a drug, for example, which can help people with alzimers before it gets too bad, but it isn’t available.
Thesame is true for the pump. Sam, as you said, it works for some people. I am not saying everyone should go onto the pump. I am saying that if it is considered the best course of treatment for the individual (as it has been told by a doctor that is would be for me) then it should be made available. At the end of the day, it will save more money in the long run, and could save a few lives on the way too.
I am aware that it is just another treatment, and it isn’t a cure. I will still need to wok at it etc.
