Patients in Leeds have had thousands of pounds of plastic surgery a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The Yorkshire Evening Post report:

Patients in Leeds have undergone NHS-funded plastic surgery worth hundreds of thousands of pounds over the last two years.

Figures obtained by the YEP under the Freedom of Information Act show those procedures included just over £355,000 worth of breast enlargements.

NHS officials came under fire this year after one 22-year-old Leeds woman was given £4,800 breast implants, funded by taxpayers.
