Five service users write to the Leader of Kingston Council

Five service users: Baroness Jane Campbell DBE, Ann Macfarlane OBE, Ali Kashmiri, Pat Page and Jane Young have written to the Leader of the Council, Councillor Derek Osbourne, using realistic scenarios to explain the serious effects of the new policy on adults of all ages with high value care packages.

In the letter we have asked a specific question about the discretion to be afforded to service users with high care needs, following a statement on this issue made by Executive Member Rolson Davies at the Scrutiny Panel meeting on 15 February 2011.

Letter to Derek Osbourne dated 8 July 2011
