Joan Burnie: PITY NOT CASH.

Byline: Joan Burnie

THOSE bereaved parents, who had their children's organs retained without their consent, are entitled not only to our sympathy, but to an apology from those who robbed their kids' graves.

It was wrong. However, what they do not deserve is compensation.

Because that money would come out of the NHS pot and deprive someone else, even some child, of necessary treatment treatment their own children received.

They are not complaining about the care their children were given while alive only what happened to their bodies once they were dead.

No amount of money can bring back their children. But by continuing to claim large sums, it almost looks as if some parents at least, are seeking to profit from their loss.

Grief shouldn't carry a price tag.
