Please Save Marcus: Family and friends in emotional protest outside Croydon University Hospital

MORE than a hundred people protested outside Croydon University Hospital this evening angered at its “refusal” to treat young dad Marcus Campbell. A line of police officers blocked the main entrance to the building as the emotional crowd, including the critically ill 22-year-old’s family, chanted “Justice for Marcus”. The demonstration was organised, mostly though social media, after the family were told, against their wishes, the hospital would not resuscitate Marcus if his heart stopped. The former Stanley Technical High School pupil, who lives in Thornton Heath, is in a critical condition after developing a rare inflammation of his brain stem.
His family claim they were told he was “dying” and there was nothing more that could be done for him, leading them to accuse the hospital of “giving up”.  However, Croydon Health Services, the trust which runs the hospital, announced this evening that it has asked for an “urgent second opinion”, which be completed by an independent expert “later this week”.
