Disabled Children Claims For NHS Funded Wheelchairs

Barnardo's and Whizz-Kidz charities report that funds for wheelchair service from NHS has not reached for the last 15 years. //So the disabled children are losing out their hope due to lack of a ‘postcode lottery’ over access to wheelchairs.

A wheelchair with most basic parts, was given due to fund drops - A report, called ‘Don't Push Me Around!’, highlights. Thus it calls for Government a good, established set of standards regarding what to give rather than the postcode lottery system.

This is an argument about who all cares for children agrees, but discouraging the basic rights of them was really disappointing to all – fired Ruth Owen, the chief executive of Whizz-Kidz charity.

‘NHS always says ‘wait’ for wheelchairs, but taking no actions regarding that and some (60 per cent) were forced to use unsuitable and others still waiting for months and years’, said charity representatives and disabled children.

About 70,000 UK disabled children needs chairs for mobility, so parents are in need of a charity to provide wheelchairs, which was not always possible. Thus making those youngs’ life more to struggle - said Barnardo's Martin Narey, the Chief executive.

Charities said: Children may develop ‘learned helplessness’, lack of independency, withdrawal, disinterest due to lack of self mobility, which in some case get into adulthood problems and mental disability.

Sir David Hall, professor of community paediatrics at the University of Sheffield, said: It was the age when children learn to develop cognitive tasks (a natural lifescience development) and feels to do things independently, thus a correctly framed wheelchair is essential for a disabled child
