Sadly Liz, you are right. Two years ago our lovely friend and neighbour was terminally ill. He was self financing but,even then the powers that be including his doctor could not get him a bed anywhere. He spent two nights in a chair in his living room even though he had spent £7,800 for a stairlift. In the end the Hospice did admit him even though they thought it was to early. It was not as he spent less than a week there, before he died. We were told by a an emergency nurse, the only way he would get a bed in hospital to die, is ring 999 for an ambulance, how did we come to this. |
