Ex-model claims GP told her how to fake depression for £7,000 nose job on NHS
A mum has claimed that a GP told her how to fake depression to get a £7,000 nose job on the NHS.
Carla Bellucci, 37, says she to have a slight bump corrected for free by the same NHS trust which has been criticised for not paying staff.
The former glamour model wanted the 'perfect' nose so went to see her GP about it.
Carla, from Borehamwood, Herts, told the Daily Star : “I went to my GP, flirted with him, and he told me exactly what to do.
“The funny thing is I’ve never had depression, never been prescribed medication for it or had any therapy. They didn’t check a thing.”
Carla had the two-hour operation at Chase Farm in Enfield, north London, part of the London Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust, in February.
The 37-year-old added that she 'didn't care what people say' about her 'milking the system' as 'that's what it's there for'.
She also said she would encourage her daughter to do the same thing if she was not happy with her nose.
A spokesman for the Royal Free London said: “Carla Bellucci had a medical procedure at Chase Farm Hospital.
“No cosmetic work was carried out.
“We would ask her to use our official complaints channels if she has any concerns about her care.”
