  • Mood:

mark would you explain this to me?

Hmm.

This is from someone on UKnova.

I live in Shropshire, our PCT (Primary Care Trust) is currently 10 million quid in debt.

As a consequence Herceptin (Breast Cancer Drug) is being refused on the NHS.

It is available privately through Shropshire centres at £40,000.
It is available through a Manchester centre for £26,000.

So while it might be available, it's cost will vary depending on your postcode, (and perceived wealth).


This seems quite outrageous! How does this work?


Incidentally if you can spare a dollar or two (or a pound sterling etc.) this family needs your help
