A partially blind woman who can barely walk is no longer eligible for a free NHS service to take her to hospital appointments - because she is "too healthy".

Pamela Midgley, 61, has up to three check-ups a month at different hospitals as she battles a degenerative eye disease, chronic arthritis, asthma and ulcers.

The legal bookkeeper, who was forced to give up work when she started losing her sight five years ago, has also been diagnosed with clinical depression.
