So I am now in a position where my son’s medication is being withheld. I can’t order it because it has to be reviewed by the consultant. This decision has been made at short notice by the G.P. and just when he is about to run out of meds. The G.P. only allows a repeat prescription when the meds have...
I think regarding the toilet use, that it may be a right for a carer to use the toilet as when they are caring for someone, they are in fact at a place of work. I have carers in for my son for 9 hours a day, imagine if I didn't allow them to use the toilet in that time. It would be unreasonable and ...
Will I be able to form a Support Bubble? People will still be able to form support bubbles – even under tier 4 restrictions – if they are at particular risk of loneliness or isolation. According to guidance on the government’s website, you can form a support bubble if you live by yourself; you are t...
Can I still form a Christmas bubble?
It depends on where you live. If you live in areas in southeast England and London, which will be moving into tier 4 restrictions, you will not be able to form a Christmas bubble.

We are discriminated against because we are mothers of a disab...
Under the Equality Act, consideration is given towards a situation of ‘being disabled by association’. It’s illegal to discriminate due to association with someone with a disability. This means, that you cannot be discriminated against just because you have a disabled person to care for in your life...
I'm not even going to get into the situation of autistic who are in A.T.U.'s. Only just to say it's far worse than it's ever been reported by the media. That includes its worse than the Winterbourne scandal investigated by Panorama. Social services are a 'pit' organization...they are trained and do ...
I agree with you Londonbound, I had all this all the way through my son's childhood and early adulthood. All through the '80s and '90s and up to 2006 I had no support for him whatsoever. In fact, he was almost 22 before any support was in place and that was only because he came out of the hospital o...
Hiya all, From my side of this, I have been through the same only I learnt from this experience. Now I pass the parcel to the allocated nurse who gets the run-around and has to tell me so. It's totally fair to place the burden on the services creating this problem. After all, they don't do anything ...
