A hospital official in Ghana said Mrs Sumani had been accompanied by British immigration officials who had offered to pay for the first three months’ treatment.
However, he said the hospital could not help her as she had no source of funding for the ongoing medical care she required.
Mrs Sumani, who has a type of cancer - malignant myeloma - which has damaged her kidneys, had been receiving dialysis three times a week in the UK before she was sent home with an expired visa.
Her solicitor said she had accepted her removal was fair but that they had made representations on her behalf on compassionate grounds.
God help us.
