A young woman died in hospital after waiting almost two hours for a blood transfusion that could have saved her. Sally Thompson, 20, bled to death after a doctor accidentally punctured her jugular vein during a bungled procedure.
Despite an urgent request to the blood bank at Manchester Royal Infirmary, she died one hour and 45 minutes later, before any arrived.
Speaking after her inquest, her father John, 62, said she would still be alive if the blood had been available sooner.
The retired farmer said: 'This hospital is supposed to be the cornerstone of the NHS in Manchester, but they couldn't get any blood for two hours.

What 3rd world country did the DR hail from?
Because that is the standard of care in third-world countries like England.
(Sorry to my British friends, the formulation was too nice to resist. I love your country dearly, it is the land of my ancestors and I dream constantly of going back there, but as far as medical care goes, nope.)
What a hell hole.
“...she would still be alive if the blood had been available sooner.”
Stating the obvious. Who writes this?
The poor woman would be alive if the surgeon hadn’t puncture her jugular.
Prayers for the family.
Government health care at work in the UK, which is slowly becoming a third-world country.
the reporter also states that O- is a common blood type.
It is not. Only about 7% of all people have Type O negative blood. http://chapters.redcross.org/br/northernohio/INFO/bloodtype.html
This reporter is a moron.
Pity, since the UK press is usually much better than in the US, even the liberal press.
No decency in regards to the facts. At the very least the reporter could have shown more respect for the grieving family.
AND BRITISH CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS LIKE MR. HANNAN ON FOX NEWS THE OTHER DAY REFUSE TO CONDEMN THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE AND DEMAND AN END TO NATIONALIZED HEALTH CARE.
WE MUST NEVER ALLOW OBAMACARE BECAUSE ONCE WE GET IT PEOPLE WILL ACCEPT IS AS NORMAL LIKE SOCIAL SECURITY INCLUDING SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVES AND REPUBLICANS.
“This hospital is supposed to be the cornerstone of the NHS in Manchester,...”
Lenin stated: “Medicine is the cornerstone of the arch of the socialist state”.
He never said “medicine is the cornerstone of the health of any nation-state and its citizens”.
They are just noticing the difference even though they never made the proper distinction using educated, discriminative thought.
Well this just can’t be true. I keep seeing RATS on TV saying everybody in Britain loves the National Health. Of course, this dead woman isn’t going to complain.
They will have plenty of blood on their hands soon enough due to the death cult that is slowly invading their demographics.
And this is what obama and the libs want for us.
It's all quite logical. Kill off the older generation with inferior health care and redirect the resources previously spent on the elderly to buy off a new constituency.
