I think I can probably chalk this one up as a success. Having Emailed my surgery to be told that I couldn’t have information by Email or in Braille, I did a bit of finding out.
I wrote back to them last week to tell them that many other blind people in other health authorities have information Emailed to them. I also informed the surgery of companies who transcribe material into Braille at aprice.
Finally I informed them that I was in duscussions with my solicitor about the DDA and how I am covered.
A matter of only eight hours later, the information I required was in my Email inbox.
I hate threatening people with the law. I like to think that they are more reasonable than that, but in this case it obviously wasn’t so.
