    Not linked to boob jobs directly but as I said before there would be more money to allocate if there were no boob jobs on the NHS.

    and do you know what health problems he had? whether he was in a palliative stage of a condition, or maybe from the info given to the ambulance service, he was already dead- just needed someone to confirm it, and quite frankly- more people who needed help between now and then?

    just as i thought a load of hearsay from the media to try and make the NHS look bad
    Yes, the state of the NHS is fantastic.

    YOU WANT A FREE FREAKING BOOB JOB. You can't have it. Get over it.

    firstly LOL @ the mirror, secondly nowhere in that article does it say he was denied an ambulance BECAUSE the money went to a woman to have a boob job, an ambulance wasnt sent because the man was not considered a emergency not because there was no money and last it was said that the man would STILL have died even if an ambulance was sent

    stop making up stuff just to try and make your point seem more valid

    IF THERE WERE NO FREE BOOB JOBS THEN THERE WOULD BE MORE MONEY TO ALLOCATE TO THE AMBULANCE SERVICE!

    THE WIFE SAID SHE THINKS HE WOULD HAVE DIED. There is no medical proof he would not have survived.

    try to take this in ok, it was NOTHING to do with lack of money an ambulance was not sent because he was NOT classed as an emergency

    and you really need to read the ******* links you are posting dude

    She wants the Ombudsman to investigate but accepts Barrie would have died even had an ambulance gone immediately.


    :rolleyes: not thinks he would have, WOULD have

    In some cases yes, in others no.

    I think Laser Eye Surgery is cosmetic... that should be covered on the NHS. Also, if you've been seriously mutilated/disformed after an attack or just been born that way, it should be covered. I suppose obvious birthmarks which you don't want can fit under that too.

    However, when it comes to botox/boob jobs (sorry)/nose jobs, it shouldn't be covered.

    Yes, everybody should be refused an ambulance on the off chance that they are not an emergency when they are having a heart attack.

    It's threads like this that make me grateful that I'll probably be alive just long enough to watch the NHS collapse on itself and die. It has cost this country SO much and yet people love it.

    unless its necessary for health reasons or say to restructure someones face after burns etc, absolutely not. If you really want balloning tits then pay for it yourself. Its the National Health Service in the end.
    What about to get a breast reduction?

    (Original post by Duckzilla)
    That's my point. The NHS stands for National Health Service and its money should be spent on improving peoples' health, not their self-esteem.
    Health covers a large range of things including self-esteem.

    of course they shouldnt and it was stupid that he was refused but you were still wrong, it had nothing to do with money

    Isn't it a coincidence that the NHS is in a lot of debt and their services cannot be used on everybody who is entitled to them?

    funny one...
    And if you were actually being serious, of course not. Once again, anything unnecessary should be done privately at your own cost, not the tax payers.

    There are more important things for the NHS to use their money on than your own body hang-ups. You set the ball rolling on boob jobs, where does it end?
    I'd only advocate surgery in extreme circumstances, such as burns or accidents etc.

    It's called making a typo and editing the post a second afterwards. Maybe I should get this condition treated on the NHS?

    isnt a typo usually where you put a letter that isnt meant to be there instead of one thats meant to be there :rofl:

    It could also be accidentally leaning over the laptop mouse when it is hovering on 'submit' when I am looking at something other than the computer screen.
