Just seen a new report NRAS are launching about the burden of RA while I understand the aims of this might be valid why is a charity designatied to support people suggesting that we are a burden.
It may be only in the title but it demonstrates the current government attitude that sick or disabled people are a burden. I work paid tax I have rights and responsibilities I am not a burden on society I simply have health issues
I have made a career working in Health and social care and if I directly suggested to a patient or service user they were any sort of burden it would be a displinary offence and here is a charity condoning a title like this.
The report into Scottish care last year again has some wrong assumptions it it's research and it seems yet again this charity has made a mistake.
