The only silver lining to this story’s metaphorical cloud is that at least Ms Duggan-Chamekh isn’t dealing with the Department for Work and Pensions.

She therefore has a slightly higher chance of survival.

“A severely disabled woman “will die” if her desperately-needed medication can’t be delivered to her flat, because her estate’s intercom has been broken for five weeks.Susan Duggan-Chamekh lives on her own in Crane House of the Pelican Estate.

The 52-year-old needs pharmacists to deliver twelve types of daily medication to her flat, which help ease symptoms associated with her spinal arthritis, cancer, and recent brain aneurysm.

She told the [Southwark] News she has called Southwark Council four or five times per week since September 4 to get her intercom system fixed.
