Has anyone else seen the new Whizz Kidz campaign to get nhs wheelchair services sorted out? There is a great picture of Tanni GT in a wheelbarrow!
It is amazing what the NHS can do when they actually try. My daughter is now in an NHS chair because the new NHS member of staff could see what she could do in her whizz-kidz chair and just ordered a replacement exactly the same. Simple when they try.
The charter is trying to get all NHS wheelchair services to do this, we need to get as many people as we can to sign it and make a difference.

Yes! Thank goodness somebody is trying to do something about this terrible service! I have never had to deal with such an inflexible system in all my time as a special needs parent! Well orthotics aren't great but that's a whole other fish to fry! Looking forward to some progress smile
