Hi . I am the parent of a teenager who requires a specialised wheelchair. Back in May 2017 i had wheelchair technician and a rep out to our home to assess my child and was done as a matter of urgency due to my child being in severe pain from wrong moulded seating and unable to travel in it longer than 20 minutes.
The quote was sent to the Wheelchair Services a few days later. Our O.T has since contacted the wheelchair service and has had no response from them. I myself have contacted them and had no response. O.T then spoke to the organisation and we now know that no order has been placed with them for my child’s moulded seat.
My child is in agony when travelling to school and back, we can't even get him out and about in it because of the pain. This isn’t good enough , no child should have to suffer like this especially when he faces enough issues on daily basis fighting.
Can you please advise me where to turn to next as it’s going to come that I can no longer get him to school in wheelchair he currently has. Absolutely disgusting service.
