Thread Name: BS: Disability legislation
Subject: RE: BS: Disability legislation
If some of you could have the courtesy to read my first posting, we had a growing network of buses capable of doing the job. The guarantees GAD were given when we were asked to stand aside have proved worthless, and the Law, the European Directive on equality, has not been implimented and has now been denied. Taking it to the Supreme Court is what's happening, but iut'll be slow, and in the mean time the people with real problems are stuffed.
Talking about Vicky Pollards is very much the order of the day, because it is that degree of thoughtlessness which causes this. Wheelchair users often have compromised health, in a way no sensible person would wish.
It's the same bureaucratic nonsense that has seen the Care Quality Commission cock up the GPs risk assessment, and now is taking a further pasting for forcing elderly residents of a failing care home to move at virtually no notice, being taken in their nightclothes into ambulances in the dead of night. When dealing with people with health problems, measure twice and cut once.
