Death on the NHS

The Daily Mirror reports that an 85 year old woman in was left to die in her own excrement because nurses were too busy to do anything about it. She

was so distraught at her treatment she pleaded with daughter Ann Cunningham: "How long does it take to die?"
Evidently, not every long once the NHS gets hold of you. If they do not you get one way, they will find another.

Elsewhere, the Guardian has the story that the NHS has ruled that a drug costing £2.50 per day is too expensive to give to elderly patients suffering from Alzheimers Disease.

Such reports are no by no means unusual. This is the health service that the left claims is the envy of the world.
