Duncan Lewis represent a lady who has a British husband and child, but was charged £5, 000 for NHS care during that pregnancy. She was then refused leave to remain because, although she is paying off the debt, more than £1, 000 remains unpaid. The couple are now expecting a second child (who will also be British from birth), but she cannot afford to have any ante-natal treatment. Her plight, and the dangers that a lack of ante-natal care give rise to, are highlighted in the attached article.'
