This was discussed on Jacob Rees Mogg’s show last night.

I already held the NHS in low esteem to be frank, but this sad case beggars belief. On almost every level it is shameful.

Hopefully, Sir Jacob’s involvement might shine a light on this scandal and help the poor lady achieve her wishes.

Good afternoon PM, all's well, thanks for asking (other thread); I trust the same applies?

Can you elaborate?

Hello, Asp.

The young lady (nineteen) was given just weeks to live over a year ago, but has since completed her school exams and continues to defy her doctors’ dire predictions that she has no hope.

She wishes to travel to Canada for treatment but the NHS has somehow blocked this in the courts… and also her desire not to remain anonymous. How any of this can be possible beggars belief to me. Apparently, she is now being prevented from travelling under Mental Health Act laws, but from the details released thus far this all seems a disgraceful abuse of power.

Sorry for the delayed response; had to pop out (NHS appt Grin) - Thanks for the overview and the links edy... I'll check them out, but sounds an awful abuse. Will respond again once I've caught up.

We'll spend 7 million a day on hotels for non British wasters, what a country.

this all seems a disgraceful abuse of power.

And not the first time the disgusting NHS has acted this way.

''The parents of five-year-old Ashya King, who were detained after taking him abroad for brain tumour treatment, say their son is now free of cancer.

Brett and Naghemeh King were held in prison in Madrid last summer after taking their son from hospital in Southampton against medical advice.'',son%20from%20hospital%20in%20Southampton%20against%20medical%20advice.

Rees-Mogg is certainly not a TV natural, but as you point out PM, his influence could help her here. Let's hope so. Sad it has had to go this far.

Who do these arrogant NHS charlatans think they are. They couldn’t run a fish and chip shop let alone  a health service.
And here they are stopping someone from getting treatment from other people, just because they are better.

Where is she going, there is no trial for her.

She should have every right to be uk funded to get
there if there was a trial that gave her any
chance of life.
