The cost of cancer and covid-19
Posted by Stan Wears on September 29, 2020, 3:39 pm
An elderly friend of mine has just told me that his wife was taken into North Tees hospital last night for tests because she has terminal cancer. However they decided to discharge her today because there is nothing more they can do as she only has maybe a week to live. Her husband rang me in desperation because they will not give her an ambulance to come home to die. He asked me if I could bring her home and it was heartbreaking to say I can't because of covid-19 and the hospital she has been in which is rife with it. I cannot believe that a dying woman was refused help. This is what I call damned disgusting. However someone else has helped but after what happened to my wife in the same hospital the NHS is now rated - 10 by me.
