A health trust which will not pay for a boy's false legs has spent £30,000 on a bash for 400 staff.Won’t pay for a boy’s false leg? Surely, she jests? Well, no:
Elaine Oakey, whose son Jamie, five, was born without a foot and part of his leg, said she felt sick when she heard.
'We have to beg people to donate things to raffles to get the care Jamie needs,' added Ms Oakey.
'We raised £40,000 in five years. They've blown just short of that in a night.' Jamie, of Blackpool, cannot get a prosthetic leg on the NHS because he is not classed as disabled.That’s right – he’s not classed as ‘disabled’. Are we going mad in this country?
Trust bosses said the party rewarded hard-working staff.
How can a little boy with no foot and part of his leg missing not be disabled…?
