Cornish Renal Patients charged unaffordable fees to travel to dialysis

Cornish Renal Patients charged unaffordable fees to travel to dialysis

Reconsider charging the sick to get to hospital for essential treatment 3 times a week. Get them to consult with everyone involved to discover a better a farer way that doesnt force patients to decide whether they want to live or not

Why is this important?

Dialysis is an essential treatment that keeps Renal patients alive, it is not a cure. We cannot decide whether to miss a session due to lack of funds but that is what we are being forced to do

Reasons for signing

  • Dick Turpin is alive and well and living in Cornwall- shame on you Kernow CCG
  • Some people will not be able to afford this charge, essential if they wish to continue living. Some people will therefore have little choice but to die.
  • I have friends who are struggling to meet this extra cost for essential treatment.
