UK : Disabled teenager died of swine flu after being refused GP appointment

Via Mail Online :

" A disabled teenager who was refused a GP appointment died two weeks later after contracting swine flu and pneumonia.

Katie Waring's devastated parents, Ken and Eveline, claim she could not get a vital appointment, and say they were told to 'wrap her up warm and give her fluids'.

Less than two weeks later, the 19-year-old, who suffered from the rare brain condition Craniostenosis, died in Hartlepool General Hospital, after being diagnosed with pneumonia and swine flu."
