A young mother gave birth on a pavement outside a hospital after she was told to make her own way there.
Mother-of-three Carmen Blake called her midwife to ask for an ambulance when she went into labour unexpectedly with her fourth child.
But the 27-year-old claims she was refused an ambulance and told to walk the 100m from her house in Leicester to the city’s nearby Royal Infirmary.
‘They said they were not sending an ambulance and told me I had had nine months to sort out a lift.’
Her daughter Mariah was delivered on a pavement outside the hospital by a passer-by, just before ambulance crews arrived.
Today a spokeswoman for the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: ‘We are disappointed that Ms Blake was not happy with the advice and care she received and will of course investigate any complaint’.
Another NHS horror story. Is this what we want?
60,000 seniors leave AARP in one month
Looks like those seniors don’t take too kindly to being interrogated by death panels.
CBS News has learned that up to 60,000 people have cancelled their AARP memberships since July 1, angered over the group’s position on health care.
Elaine Guardiani has been with AARP for 14 years, and said, “I’m extremely disappointed in AARP.”
Retired nurse Dale Anderson has 12 years with AARP and said, “I don’t wanna be connected with AARP.”
Many are switching to the American Seniors Association, a group that calls itself the conservative alternative as CBS News Investigative Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports.
AWESOME! This goes to show you how a smart pastor like Harry Jackson can really be persuasive.
I just looked him up. He has an MBA from HARVARD UNIVERSITY. All is now clear as spiderwebs.
