Absolutely appalling service. Waiting times far to long. Repairs time ludicrous even though my child was in danger. Was told this is due to staff shortages and a high level of maternity leave being taken which is little consolation for my child who is visibly suffering due to his wheelchair.
I am a tetraplegic and they have been nothing but helpful with government cutbacks they have to account for every penny they do a admirable job with what they have. I have no complaints whatsoever and I would put them up against any other country in the world.
Disgusting I am still disappointed with these services I get even though after a long time I have finally received my wheelchair I am still having issues with it and I feel not much is being done about it quick enough.
