Morrissey has slammed the NHS after the death of his mother and claimed that doctors missed three chances to diagnose her gallbladder cancer.   

The former Smiths frontman made the bold accusations a week after he urged fans to pray for her health and described her as the ‘sole reason for all the good and motivational things in my life’.  

His mother, Elizabeth Anne Dwyer, 82, initially suffered a stroke but died from gallbladder cancer last week. 

Morrissey, born Steven Patrick Frances Morrissey, claims that NHS doctors missed the cancer after ‘three extensive head-to-toe examinations’ so weren’t able to treat her.

In a statement on his website, Morrissey Central, he wrote: ‘Following a stroke, her recovery was remarkable. 

‘She had three extensive head-to-toe examinations by the NHS who could find nothing amiss. 

‘Four days following the third examination I was told that my mother had three weeks to live. 

‘Nine days later she had withered and died without any attempt by the NHS to save her life. 

‘Once the NHS waves you off with paracetamol, get ready to meet your maker. 

‘The official cause of my mother’s death was not the trendy and unquestionable – ”covid” – but, instead, cancer of the gallbladder…

‘How I wish to all gods that my mother had expressed no faith in the NHS.

‘She might still be alive today.’ 

Ms Dwyer lived in Altrincham, a suburb of Manchester, and worked as librarian.

She inspired Morrissey’s love of books which eventually led to his becoming a musician renowned as one of the best lyricists. 

And Morrissey says she was a bit influence on his animal rights activism. In 2011 he said: ‘I would definitely say that my mother started me. She’s very active. She often goes on anti-hunt rallies in the UK. She has influenced me very much.’ 

Morrissey had posted on his website on August 8 asking that his fans ‘offer prayers of hope and prayers of intercession for the recovery of Elizabeth Anne Dwyer, who is my mother, who is in trouble’.

He wrote: ‘With this broken voice I beseech you, my friends, to offer prayers of hope and prayers of intercession for the recovery of Elizabeth Anne Dwyer, who is my mother, who is in trouble, and who is the sole reason for all the good and motivational things in my life.’

‘She is me, and without her vahaan koee kal hal … there is no tomorrow. I ask no more of you… for there could be no more to ask.’

Unusually, he then signed off with his full name, Steven Patrick Francis Morrissey. 

An announcement on his website said that her funeral will be held in Dublin, where she was born, and that ‘all are welcome’. 

NHS England has been contacted for comment.
