Gastric bypass op appeal

11th July 2011

The Court of Appeal is to decide if a 22 stone man who has diabetes was right to be refused a gastric bypass operation by NHS North Staffordshire.

Thomas Condliff was refused the surgery as his BMI was 43 and not over 50, which is the minimum for surgery on the NHS. If his case is successful NHS North Staffordshire would have to reconsider his case although it could still decide he was not eligible for the operation.
