The Telegraph newspaper noted that the government allocated money in the health budget thanks to a campaign by the family of Telegraph journalist Christopher Hope, whose two-year-old Pollyanna lost her leg below the knee when she was hit by a bus on a footpath in London in 2007.
Hope’s mother-in-law was killed in the same incident.
