Fifty-five stone man who is one of Britain's fattest 'has cost the NHS £250k over six months and is still blocking four hospital beds despite being medically fit to leave'

Insiders said Matthew Crawford was given clearance to leave three months ago
He had to stay after a care facility found out he had previously assaulted nurses
The 33-year-old has cost the taxpayer £120,000 since then

A 55-stone man that commands the space of four hospital beds is actually medically fit to be discharged from hospital despite continuing to drain hundreds of thousands of pounds from the NHS.

Insiders have revealed that Matthew Crawford, who is known to go on racist Facebook rants, was told he could leave hospital three months ago but stayed on, costing the taxpayer a further £120,000.

In total, it is estimated that his care has cost £250,000 during his six-month stay. He and the equipment used to care for him fills the space of a four-bed bay.

he Mirror reported that last month that Crawford cannot be moved out until an app­­ropriate social care place is found and that the hospital he's in, King's Mill Hospital in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts, said a move was imminent.

A source has now told the paper that the unit where he was due to go pulled the plug after learning Matthew has a conviction for attacking nurses.

The 33-year-old was convicted and ordered to pay compensation earlier this year for assaulting nurses at a care home.

Why are they caring for him if he's fit to leave? I hope they've not been feeding him much - it's time he lost weight.

I used to think that hospitals were full of ill people, but it seems not.

He should have lost three stone by now. Only about another 43 to go. Laughing

Fuck him off out of there!!!


He'll soon lose some weight if he had to walk about outside and fend for himself...
