A woman who can't work because her 42N breasts cause her constant back pain hasbeen denied an NHS operation – because her case is not "exceptional". Ginny Chapman, 20, struggles with "unbearable" back pain and is forced to claim £250-a-week in benefits because her boobs are so massive.
She has to splash out on £95 personalised bras because her breasts are so big – but doctors say her case isn't exceptional enough for NHS surgery.
She told The Sun: "My boobs are the equivalent of carrying one-and-a-half stone on my chest. "They are a curse. I'm in constant agony and I can't believe they don't think I qualify for the operation.
"I can't pay until I have a good job - it is a vicious circle." Ginny, from York, said she would love to go to the gym but instead watches her friends play basketball.
The hospital trust which considered the application said the case was not deemed to be "clinically exceptional".
An NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group statement said: "The patient does have the opportunity to appeal. To date, no appeal has been received."
The operation has been refused despite scroungers such as Josie Cunningham claiming boobs jobs on the NHS. Publicity-mad Josie shot to notoriety after having the plastic surgery two years ago.
Clearly forgetting where her new chest came from, Josie recently hit out at people getting gastric bands on the NHS. She posted on Twitter: "Sick of people who get gastric bands on the NHS uploading Facebook pics & people saying 'You've done so well.' Wat have they done exactly?"
