Motion text

That this House recognises the report of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Paediatric Mobility Reform entitled, `My wheelchair is my shoes' making the case for wheelchair reform, which shows the difference the right wheelchair can make to a child's life; further notes that the report shows that with the right wheelchair a young person with a disability is more likely to enter into higher education and therefore employment; further notes that Whizz-Kidz national charity has been running the paediatric wheelchair service for Tower Hamlets Primary Care Trust for four years and as such has removed waiting times, saved the service 60 per cent. on equipment delivery and delivered the right equipment at the right time; and further notes that now is the time, with NHS reform taking centre stage, to ask the Government to act on the recommendations of the report to enable all wheelchair services to be as efficient and as effective as the Tower Hamlets wheelchair service.
