Mums praise Southampton experts after Ashya King’s parents whisked him away to Europe for alternative treatment

The mother of a young boy treated for a brain tumour at Southampton General Hospital has defended NHS treatment, following the Ashya King case. Lisa Joslin said: “All us mums under the care of the team at Southampton General Hospital feel strongly about the way the hospital has been portrayed. I’m really worried the public may lose confidence in the NHS protocol, especially parents of newly diagnosed children not knowing where to turn. But I can say the team at Southampton are my angels, like gods. They have given me the most precious gift, the gift of life for my son.”

    This is what happens when a country becomes so self obsessed to call the NHS the best in the world then pay surgeons 100K+ just to impose their narrow self beliefs on everyone else. Had this boy continued treatment here, we would be talking about his funeral buy now. Wake up and smell the fresh air – the world has moved on quite a bit. If you are a decent hard working parent, these days even in some 3rd world countries some of these expensive treatments are available and within reach. But not so in this place where time stopped advancing two or three decades ago, now we just work hard and pay taxes to support those who stay home stretched on a sofa and claim benefits.
