Five years ago only 8 cases were reported.
There is concern however, that in some cases the funding would buy only the very basic equipment and people may then have to pay the extra to get a more appropriate model of equipment as they perceive it.
It could lead to people buying equipment without appropriate professional input such as from occupational therapists. However, part of the plus of the service suggested is that by removing councils from the provider role, it would free up more funding that could be invested in an improved therapy service.
