?Discriminatory?


I sent this inquiry to the Equality and Human Rights Commission and to Monitor (the body which awards and monitors foundation status) today.

“1. The Norfolk and Waveney Mental Heath NHS Trust has a practice which excludes service users not in receipt of secondary mental health services from membership of its Service User Council and from the Service User Section of its prospective foundation trust membership. I think this is discriminatory and a breach of the Disability Equality Duty. Can you please advise.

2. Similarly, I am of the opinion that the use of eligibility criteria for the provision of services may also be a breach of the Disability Equality Duty. Can you also please advise on this.”

It will be interesting to see what they say.

The bare facts as laid out would appear to me to be discriminatory and in breach of the DED, I am interested to find out out the official ruling will be.Please post the reply.
