Wheelchair users get their voice heard

31/07/2018

 

Last week, we supported the Kent Physical Disability Forum, alongside wheelchair user groups and individuals, to esclate their concerns about Kent's wheelchair service to the Health Overview & Scruitiny Committee (HOSC).

Today the Kent Physical Disability Forum has published an open letter about their collective concerns.

You can watch the story on BBC here 

The Kent Physical Disability Forum is indepedent and is made up of people with a physical disability. It is funded by Engaging Kent, which is our parent company, and facilitated by Healthwatch Kent.  

Healthwatch has supported the Forum to raise its concerns directly to Millbrook who provide the wheelchair service and Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group who commission the service.
