This was on my Facebook feed tonight. I don't often link them but this one I think should have support.

A friend of mine need our help. Here's what she has to say. If you agree sign and share

*Please please sign and share this petition I have made!!!
It is so important not just for me but for many serving families, who are constantly waiting for much needed appointments! Especially those with children who have special needs! We waited a year and we are still waiting on these appointments are so so important!
many of you know I have three children but not many of you know two of them have autism something that needs many different specialists but because we have moved we went straight to the bottom of the list!*

I'm not saying military children skip the NHS waiting time just that they don't have to start all over again just because they move as its not the children's choice to move and waiting often has such an effect on their development for these services and often just when you get seen a new posting order is waiting.

We've been very fortunate and the army have been amazing in helping us but this is something that is out of their control!

Thank you so much for reading please please sign!

Signed, I don't know any forces families but this just seems so unfair.

This right already exists - see the military covenant, section on page 6 'healthcare' of this version www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/49469/the_armed_forces_covenant.pdf

Tell your friend to get on to the relevant Families Foundation, explain what has gone wrong, and have them help her sort it out. Some parts of NHS are better than others at meeting their obligations.
