Panorama revelations about Home Care Services

Those local authorities using the home care services organisations featured in the Panorama expose last night are clearly in breach of the Disability Discrimination Acts and should be prosecuted. The Disability Rights Commission would have done so. What action will the Equality and Human Right Commission be taking?

I didn't watch the programme. Justifiable reasons (personal ones in regards to father's health problems and the minefield of trying to get appropriate care for him)....also sensed that it would not leave me feeling all warm and furry about how a very vulnerable section of society are being treated.

I have, intermittently, swung with the view that private health care was the way forward. That competition would improve the quality of care provided. All the time being acutely aware that when it comes to private care, it is those with the big bucks that get the big slice of the quality care cake and the poorer end of society are left with the crumbs.

Now, I am categorically against private care....cos when it comes to the public's money being sliced off for private sector care services, the end result is vulnerable people being treated like lumps of sshhhh you know what.

I am glad the programme was shown but I doubt it will make any difference. Nobody tends to give a stuff about how the vulnerable are treated until they become vulnerable themselves.

Cynical view maybe but I think it is a realistic one.
