Sylvia May, 73, has a number of conditions including fibrosing alveolitis, a lung condition from which 50pc of people die within five years.

Despite having lived with the illness for 11 years, Mrs May also has type 2 diabetessevere rheumatoid arthritis and chronic kidney disease.

And in June last year her husband Robert, 77, started the process of applying for NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding as caring for her became too much.

CHC is a complex package of health and social care funded solely by the NHS, and is often used for those with long-term complex healthcare needs.
