NHS row, mother wins money back

9th July 2009

A mother who spent £31,000 on life-saving treatment for her daughter while NHS bodies argued over funding is to get her money back.

The woman’s daughter, who lived in south Wales, developed depression and anorexia while staying in Devon and came under the care of Plymouth TPCT, which in turn approached a consultant psychiatrist near the woman’s home to take on the care but he declined. A funding dispute between health trusts caused the woman hardship, leading the ombudsman to find maladministration and service failure by NHS bodies in Wales and England.
