Local authority vision rehab services found wanting in reports

25 Sep 2020 12:54 | RWPN Admin (Administrator)

Shortcoming in the vision rehab services at two local authorities have come under scrutiny in 2020.  The local government and social care ombudsman issued a report on the experiences of a service user in Hammersmith and Fulham, and Birmingham Healthwatch consulted with local service users to help the local authority draw up plans to meet recognised problems in their service.  Both reports shine a light on the statutory position of vision rehab and the direction given by ADASS in providing services.
