‘This is the ultimate slap in the face’
Lance Corporal Callum Brown has been told the English NHS will no longer foot the bill for his treatment at hospital specialising in military casualties.
A soldier who lost his legs in Afghanistan will no longer get treatment in England – because he’s Scottish.
Callum Brown, 28, still endures horrific pain from injuries caused by a bomb blast six years ago.
But now the former soldier is to lose the treatment and medication he has relied on.
He said: “I am sitting here without my legs because I fought for this country.”
“This is the ultimate slap in the face. I am still in shock and can barely get my head around it.”
