Car travel with oxygen
I live in Tameside. I am 85 years old man and have COPD and other medical conditions. I go to a day care centre three times a week using social services transport. However, my medical condition has deteriorated and I now need to use a wheelchair and oxygen. I have been told by Transport I need a crash tested wheelchair and a cage for my oxygen tank when I am transported to the day care centre. But Transport are not forthcoming in what I exactly need to buy to cover their health and safety procedure. Surely there must be other people who are in a similar situation. It is so frustrating.
