A Tale From the NHS Trenches

From the Daily Mail (my bolds):
A young mother has gone virtually blind after NHS doctors diagnosed her with headaches six times - missing the fact she had a potentially fatal build up of fluid on the brain.
It was only when Rachel Mulhall, 19, went to see a private consultant that her condition was diagnosed.

The delay in diagnosis has cost Ms Mulhall 80 per cent of her sight which doctors say may never return, according to the mother-of-one...
Hey, it could happen anyhere, right?
