NHS Continuing Healthcare (SIA 2017)

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NHS Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group,

I work for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), the leading national user-led charity supporting spinal cord injured people and their families. Being a user led organisation SIA understand the challenges of living with a spinal cord injury (SCI). We strive to support all people living with SCI to access the services and support they need to stay healthy and live full, fulfilling and active lives.
