"Traumatised by the NHS Turning Their Back On Me......"

About: Leighton Hospital

Anything else?

I am devastated due to fact the degenerative disc problem i have - is not able to be treated on the NHS.

An operation is the only solution - but this cant be done.

Its not a cosmetic operation - but a life changing one.

Its an insult when the consultant tells me that i can see them privately to get this sorted.

I'm a 37 year old man who is now crippled with pain until i can save £20,000 to change my life.

My family suffer, my pain is unbearable - and its annoying that should i have caused this problem myself - like drink related problems, obesity - the NHS would have helped.

Please let me know when funding is available - as i NEED HELP.

I've paid my dues - and you have turned your back on me.

IF FUNDING IS AVAILABLE IN ANOTHER UK COUNTRY - I WILL TRAVEL - HELP ME.
