https://uk.news.yahoo.com/mps-warn-kidn ... ml#VoMQ6vxKidney disease charities were "stunned" to have been told this week dialysis will no longer be a prescribed service on the English NHS from next year, MPs have heard.
Labour's Madeleine Moon (Bridgend) said officials at the Department of Health revealed the "dangerous" decision in a meeting, and told the groups legislation would be put to MPs in February.
Mrs Moon urged Commons Leader William Hague organise a ministerial statement by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to allow MPs to protest at the plans.
