Alan has now had the decision from the NHS about funding this life-saving oper­ation. The decision is a resounding NO. They won’t do it. Alan’s life has got a price on it and he’s too expensive to save.

If there is a lesson to be learned here by anyone in the UK who ever reads the narratives on this site it’s to get some private medical insurance that is underwritten to include surgery outside of this pitiful country.
