"I feel there is an inequality depending on where you live"

I’m slightly incontinent so I need to use pads. The treatment I got in Inverness was first class. However, since moving to Aberdeen I’ve found that I can’t get a pad. I’m disappointed as I’ve been paying my taxes since 1949 – this should be a national health service and not just covering certain areas more than others.
I feel there is an inequality depending on where you live. I was told I could arrange a private subscription but I can’t afford that – I’m 81-years-old.
Also when the carers have visited me, they said they couldn’t lift me themselves as they’d get in trouble, so I had to get my wife to help.
I don’t want to get the nurses or doctors in trouble, but I just feel it’s unfair that the service should vary so much depending on where you live.
