Healthwatch need your input. Has your council kept you waiting for assessment for aides?

Interesting reading on the disability rights newsletter. Some people nationwide being kept waiting up to a year to be assessed for aides needed around the home. Are you one? Find your local Healthwatch office. They are getting involved in compliling information and asking questions about long delays for these basic, usually free, rights. Some councils employing more people to work on unacceptable backlogs.

I'm one. I've sent my email. How about you? Someone out there cares about this issue and can apply pressure on our behalf across the UK. Let's use it guys.

Love to all
