British Grandmother has timely bypass surgery in India

not want to wait any longer," she said. "My husband and I hadn't had a holiday for three years because of my condition and we just wanted it done - so I gave them a call.

"It was quicker and cheaper than having the operation done privately here. "The quote came through on Sep 22. I accepted it on 23rd and I flew out to India on the 29th.

"We didn't do a single thing. The centre arranged the visas, flights - everything.

Mavis, who flew to India with her husband Ken, 69, said that they had never considered private treatment as an option in Britain because they knew they could not afford it.

"We paid less than 5,000 pounds, minus the cost of the flights, for the treatment. We have been told that the same care would have cost as much as 25,000 pounds in Britain.

"I can walk anywhere now. The Apollo staff was excellent. I had eight doctors attending on me and the hospital itself was immaculate. "I was in my own private room for two weeks and then had a week in a hotel so that I was nearby for when my stitches were cut."

Mavis, a retired wages clerk, thinks that it is wrong for people to have to go so far as India for treatment. "From my experience I think the NHS is good in emergencies," she said. "But if you have to go on a waiting list, you can wait forever and a day."
