Here’s what you could have won…

18 Jan Here’s what you could have won…

Our co-founder Theresa Travis writes after the news that two of the Clinical Directors being gotten rid of by NHS England are the ones for Neurology and Rehabilitation :

” Same old story Neuro Rehab reduced, generalised and ignored. I’m so fed up of seeing patients wheeled out at meetings and presentations with the patronising  ” look at this patient had to learn everything again even the basics like eating and talking look at them now – wow had rehabilitation and it worked!…

… But hey you can’t have that because you haven’t had an accident so no insurance to pay,or a negligence case with an award, so you can have what we can find for you and you’ll be grateful. It doesn’t matter if it’s not specific to you, meets your needs or even part of the clinical recommendations, as long as you’re getting something we have done our bit.”

So thanks very much charities and organisations with your “look at what can happen with support and rehab” for most of us that’s like saying “come and see what you could have won” (remember the TV show Bull’s Eye) This is reality for most people living with Neurological conditions and illness and don’t let anyone tell you any different!

Oh and by the way if you’re not running marathons, back at work or getting out of bed every day because you’re too ill or exhausted, just remember – it’s not your fault!
