Will the NHS still invest in equipment that saved my life?

Will the NHS still invest in equipment that saved my life?

I was designated as having epilepsy in my teens. The fact that it was caused by a brain tumour was not discovered until well into my late 20s when MRI scans were first used.

The support I`ve had over the years from Addenbrookes has been first class and bearing in mind how expensive MRI machines were I doubt if the cause of my epilepsy and subsequent proper treatment would have happened but for the NHS being able to invest in the equipment.

Without such investment in the future, progress in identifying and addressing medical conditions will not be made.

The NHS will be under increased pressure as Local Authority cuts will mean that preventative work will cease to be done by social services. It is economic madness.
