    Here's another post by Gavin on the topic:

    AHSCT: who should have access?

    Who should control access to AHSCT as a treatment for MS? The patient, the healthcare provider or the healthcare system? Have your say!
    Please don’t shoot the messenger. If push came to shove if I had MS I would probably choose AHSCT (autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplant) as a first-line treatment.

    Several people have been accusing me of preventing the patient I discussed in the case study on the 16th of September from having AHSCT. All I said is that I would not recommend she goes abroad for treatment. I am a strong supporter of the principles that (1) healthcare is a basic human right and (2) those that underpin the founding of the NHS; i.e. healthcare should be both equitable and free at the point of care. Advising a patient to go abroad and spend 40,000+ to have AHSCT undermines these principles.
