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

Letter to Prime Minister By Jill Havern
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This is an actual letter I wrote to the Prime Minister in 2006 because a knighted professor withheld vital information about a life saving operation for my husband in 2003. It was this letter that... More > prompted me to write a book and start a petition about the NHS Death Row and Postcode Lottery. If you, or anyone you know, have been diagnosed with an 'inoperable' condition, please visit my website for more details because facts are emerging in the media that life saving treatment is being deliberately withheld to save money and reduce waiting lists - and I urge you to ensure you are not one of these statistics. People are dying prematurely and needlessly and this is having a devastating effect on families. http://www.gopetition.com/online/11877.html< Less
Can My Husband's Life Be Saved? By Jill Havern

My husband was diagnosed inoperable and terminally ill in 2003 by a professor with a knighthood, here in the UK. After posting this narrative on the Aneurysm Support Group website at the University... More > of West Georgia, USA, I discovered that he wasn't inoperable at all. What I found was a cash-strapped NHS that was deliberately withholding information about this expensive surgery in order to reduce waiting lists for the government and to save money. Dead patients don't cost the NHS a thing. Many thousands of people, including surgeons, from all around the world followed our plight and joined in to help us with this harrowing race against a ticking clock to save my husband before his aneurysm killed him. I hope it will be informative and inspire others to find help. A true story. http://www.gopetition.com/online/11877.html< Less
