Return from Nowhere

A mother's struggle against the system.

Claire Byrne

When 21-year-old David suffered an accident and a brain haemorrhage on a holiday abroad, clinicians diagnosed sunstroke and missed a vital window to take emergency action. So began a decade-long struggle for treatment, rehabilitation and financial assistance back home in the UK that dragged his mother Claire through hell as she tried to overcome every legal and medical obstacle put in her way. This is a story that shows not only how bad the healthcare system can get, but also the way in which a determined mother will let nothing stand in her path when her son's life and livelihood are at stake.
