Letter to the editor by Wendy Binnie

A letter was published in last week's paper regarding an article written by two doctors in the previous week's paper regarding health care in the UK.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion but not their assumptions. My entire family in England was/is Conservatives not Liberal. I can add only that my mother was cared for for many weeks after her stroke - no plug pulling there. One aunt in her eighties had three colon cancer operations. Another aunt had both knees operated on and attended therapy for as long as she needed. None had to wait.

The incidents cited sounded familiar. And it would be interesting to know how large the pool was from which these unfortunate's stories were culled.
