recently in june i had a bit of a rant about being charged 30 quid for a drs form.i mentioned it to someone at mnda who sent a letter saying how disappointing to hear that ,considering hubbys diagnosis.we heard nothing and then today got a refund of 30 quid.what a result.thanks to mnda for intervening.hubby getting worse fell couple of times once right at top of stairs which scared us.hoping to get temp stairlift next week or so until council get a move on with dfg.apparently still waiting for a quote 2 months down the line.give me the no. i will invite them to our house and shame them into hurrying up.going to sit in the sun now and relax cos im fit to burst at the moment with the stress of it all caroline xx

Hi Caz,

Great news , what would have been so much better all round was them having the decency not to have charged it in the first place, but that's life, Does you hubby use any aids in the house, like a frame or walker, I know I dread going past the top of our stairs always keep well back now after having a few close ones.
I know it's easy to say but try to relax and cool down, have long cool drink ?
