The costs could be met by Bankers bonuses.

 NHS Drug Plea For Child With Blood Disorder.

 

Indie Smith 


The parents of a two-year-old girl with a rare blood disorder fear she faces a "lifetime of hospital visits and dialysis" unless the NHS funds an expensive new drug.Her problem is that the NHS will not continue to fund her treatment, at a cost of £250,000 a year, despite a Government advisory body recommending the drug be commissioned nationally.





 It seems to me that there is a very simple solution to this problem.
Select any 3 bankers from RBS, Barclays, HSBC, or any of the others, and confiscate £1million from each of  their bonuses for 2012, (just like the bankers in Cyprus confiscated money from savers), and use the £3miilion to fund the treatment for 12 years.
By the end of that period, NICE should have come to some conclusion (or better still will have been dismantled and replaced by a more useful body). If no decision has been reached by 2025, confiscate another sum from bankers bonuses and use that to fund another 12 years of treatment..
