How many women stand up to Britain’s cash-strapped National Health Service and strip its policies bare to reveal a strange, ingrown corruption that declares some patients inoperable, and sends... More > them home to die, in order to balance their books and reduce waiting lists? The dual culprits in my husbands' potential demise were a nastily burgeoning aneurysm on his aorta, and a National Health Service so good at hiding life-saving information, even from itself, that it could spend as much to kill him as to save him. When a doctor can save a life, he is supposed to do it, but some keep silent about expensive treatment. Dead patients don't cost the NHS a thing. This could happen to any one of us. To capture all of what happened I have written a novel based on the events. Names are changed and some of the more complex events are compressed and simplified. This is a fictional account of a real experience and has featured in 'Take a Break' magazine in the UK.< Less
