Theresa May promises to look into man’s £54,000 NHS cancer bill

Theresa May has promised to look into into the case of a Londoner asked to pay £54,000 for cancer treatment despite having lived in the UK for 44 years, after Jeremy Corbyn raised it at prime minister’s questions. The difficulties faced by Albert Thompson, the 63-year-old man whose case was uncovered by the Guardian, were highlighted during a heated exchange on the state of the NHS. Thompson is not receiving the radiotherapy treatment he needs for prostate cancer after he was unable to provide the hospital with sufficient evidence of residency.
