Rural Discrimination?

I’m getting some unevidenced worries from people living in country areas away from towns that their Local Involvement Networks (LINks) may be selecting people to participate in activities who live in or near the urban area where the LINks Host has its office and the NHS and local authority concentrates its services - and excluding those who live some distance away.

It is surmised that this is because those living some distance from the host office and NHS services are a drain on the travel expenses budget.

It is difficult to see how this can be ascertained if it is happening but the only thing I can suggest is to wait for the annual report which will give a chance to ask questions and make challenges. However, if more people are concerned this might be happening, it would be useful to compile a record of suspicions so please get in touch here.
