LETTER: NHS spend billions on cosmetic surgery but not cancer drug

The NHS spends £ billions each year on people that have drunk too much, smoked too much, , over dosed on drugs, all manner of operations for those who are grossly over weight,, breast implants and cosmetic surgery.

Teratonne, a new 
drug, will prolong the life of those unfortunate to have advanced testicular cancer. However, the NHS will not use this drug as it is ‘too expensive’.

Nobody asks to get testicular cancer but they are denied treatment while thousands who, due to personal vanity or self 
abuse, receive all the treatment they demand free of charge.

It would seem that our establishment need to take a long hard look as where they spend the public’s money
