Father pays £2000 for gallbladder treatment abroad

A father from Cleethorpes has paid 2 thousand pounds to travel abroad for treatment on his gallbladder after he claims the medical care offered to him in the UK didn't stop his pain.

Francis McGovern says he was in so much agony he booked into a hospital in Marseille in France, where doctors removed the organ. Mr McGovern also says over the last eight months he was admitted to Grimsby's Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital four times. Each time surgery was not recommended.
