Op-ed: When your child needs an operation in the UK and it is cancelled you will understandably be angry. When it is not NHS funded you will face huge costs.
When he finally gets that operation but is denied the necessary post-op physiotherapy you will be livid.
But there is much more to this story which is a sad indictment of Tory Britain in 2016.
The boy at the heart of this story is Ben Baddeley who is 11-years-old and has cerebral palsy.
He wrote to PM Cameron and his letter is in this report.
Cameron's office wrote back but as you can see from that reply letter shown below his was impersonal and simply a rehash of an earlier NHS reply received.
As Mrs Baddeley says David Cameron's letter simply echoes earlier responses from the NHS.
Mr and Mrs Baddeley were not happy with Cameron's reply. It is an impersonal response and fails Ben and his parents on all levels.
They have explained the situation and the Huffington Post UK reports: “The discussion he mentions with NHS England has already happened.” “The funding request he mentions has been refused four times because the NHS claim to have ‘no proof’ that this treatment is cost effective and our hospitals near us don’t employ the therapist needed.”
We wonder what proof they have that the therapy will NOT benefit this child?
Ben's father is asking people to share his story after several attempts to get the NHS funding for his son failed.
An anonymous donor covered the £11,440 cost of surgery but then the "NHS refused to fund the 18 months of further rehabilitation treatments he needed, which cost just under £2,000 every month."
The NHS is at a Tory government inflicted crisis point. This means our healthcare is back at the postcode lottery stage again.
While new advances in medicine and treatments could help us all live longer once again it will the richest in British society who benefit from all advances.
For the rest us some bureaucrat will look at the cost and availability before he or she decides if it is worth the cost and beneficial to the patient.
That is a sad and sorry state of affairs.
Paying for physiotherapy in the UK is not cheap and some people struggle to meet the costs of extended periods of treatment.
But as we all pay for the NHS in taxes and national insurance contributions should we really have to bankroll treatment for our kids?
Good luck to the Baddeley family.
David Cameron is currently sunning himself in Lanzarote-we hope he reads this and other stories relating to Ben and does the decent thing when he returns to the UK.
That is if he does. Such is the popularity of Cameron that The Canary boss Kerry-anne Mendoza of Farnborough, United Kingdom, started a petition for Home Secretary Theresa May asking her to "Ban David Cameron From Re-Entering The UK" and that petition already has 20,700 plus signatures!
