Sir: As a pensioner of 70 I disagree with Jean Jenkinson (letter, 28 April). I regard myself as fortunate to be alive and, for now, healthy. If the health service is forced to make choices then it is the young, who have not yet had their lives, or are bringing up families, who should be looked after, rather than those of us who are lucky enough to have reached the three score years and ten. This is not "ageism", it is fair play.
