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
