Kræftpatient nægtet dyr medicin – begik selvmord

Godt at briterne ikke har et sundhedssystem som det amerikanske, hvor folk ligger og dør i gaderne, fordi de ikke har råd til sundhedsforsikringer. I Storbritannien kan de få lov at dø på køkkengulvet.

A cancer patient killed himself a day after being told he had been refused a wonder drug by his local primary care trust.

Terminally-ill Albert Baxter, 75, committed suicide hours after learning he had been turned down for a drug which could have prolonged his life and shrunk his tumour.

In desperation, the cancer sufferer offered to pay for the drug, only to be told that he would have to foot the bill for his entire treatment which he could not afford. […]

[Partner Barrie] Curryer found Albert dead in the kitchen of their home. … [Curryer] said: ‘What really upset him was that he worked all his life and paid into the health system and was refused treatment.
