NHS Wheelchair service
Were i Live in Calderdale our services was Privatised this started off well, but sadley has gone down hill fast with Long delays and chairs not getting fixed right.
But the finger was pointed at the Private company but they had to get rid of a back log from the NHS they were given 3 million for three years this was for Calderdale and Kirkless by the CCCG ) Clinical car comisioning group) but they spent half a million getting rid of the NHS Mess sadley the money has run out with Time Left on there contract so there issueing second hand chairs out if they can, but they wont be taking on the next contact there should of been more money avalable for specialist chairs but not taking it off the others.
We dont need stress from the NHS on getting a chair we have to live with why is it there is a postcode lottery on NHS wheelchairs we need standard rules not guidlines
