"Not allowed to take my wheelchair"
Posted by zodiac (as ),
I became unwell on monday evening, the overnight doctor service sent a doctor to my home, who decided I needed admitted to hospital.
when the ambulance arrived the crew refused to take my wheelchair in the ambulance telling me they were not allowed to. this stranded me at ayr hospital feeling very isolated and anxious.
today after being discharged from hospital my brother who does not live in ayr had to go to my home to retrieve my wheelchair before I could be discharged.
it would be helpful if the people who make these rules could realise how vulnerable and scared disabled people get and take their views into account
