ABSTRACT
ATAXI driver in Galway told me about his wife - the mother of his three teenage children - having a massive stroke at the age of 43. This devastated her life, and that of her family, and has cost hundreds of thousands of euros. All of it could have been avoided with better basic primary care (and simple inexpensive blood pressure medication) that would cost a few euros a month.
