Pregnant women denied pain-relieving epidurals because staff shortages at NHS hospital

Another story in the news today that makes me so mad - especially after posting those figures the other day on how much money the NHS spends on smoking, alcohol and obesity.

There is an article today in the Daily Mail that talks about how women in the UK having to suffer through child birth with no pain relief because of a shortage of staff.

An investigation by the Daily Mail found that the problem at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle has been going on for at least three years.

It's hard to believe that this is allowed to happen once let alone for three years.
