Joshua's application for funding to attend the Bobath Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy was refused. We haven't had a letter explaining the reasons. Bobath actually contacted us with the news.
As David pointed out, the PCT/NHS are more than happy for him to undergo needless appointments, like audiology, when there is no concern for his hearing, repeated ophamology, when there is no change to his vision, an offer for a visit to a neurosurgeon, when there is nothing to be achieved. But no help at all for Bobath, who's expertise in the field has been going strong for over 40 years. Early intervention is key!
I await a letter to explain why Joshua can't have the best therapy available.
In the mean time we are going to self fund a consultation and take it from there.
