Mother wins NHS gastric band case
Wednesday 22 September 2010
A sixteen-stone woman denied gastric band treatment on the NHS has used a judicial review to reverse the decision.
Hazel Kent, 40 was denied the life-saving treatment despite her weight ballooning to nearly 16 stone. She had already paid for one operation in September 2001, which caused her weight to drop to 10 stone. The band came loose two-and-a-half years later and had to be removed. Her Primary Care Trust in East Berkshire had refused to pay for a second band.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
