Bradley, 17, was told by specialists at the Royal Brompton hospital in London that his only option here in the UK was a heart and lung transplant.
Jaimie said: “We were told in September 2015 Brad’s mitral valve was in need of urgent replacement.
“Then they called and said, actually we’re not going to do it at all and I didn’t question it.
“I just assumed it was because they didn’t need to and was relieved.”
Fancy assuming that the NHS had the interest of the patient in mind!
The family was told again last autumn that Bradley urgently needed the valve replaced.
But this time, they decided to seek the opinion of a foreign medical service, rather than the one they are taxed to pay for. And it proved to be the right decision.
Jaimie said: “The specialist is hopeful Brad will eventually have up to 90 per cent functionality of his lungs.
“The NHS wanted to remove them. The surgeon has fixed Brad’s heart, the NHS wanted to remove that too.
“They were going to kill Brad, yet here he sits, same heart and lungs.”
The comments are rather interesting. Particularly this one:

When something goes wrong in our NHS its headline news.The vast majority of cases the NHS deals with it gets it right.
No doubt if Twitter had been around on the 15th April in 1912, some member of the White Star Line would be posting ‘Look, let’s not get carried away, look at all the White Star Line ships that actually reached New York!’
