Must read opinion piece on Ouch! (the BBC web-site on disability)

Sir Thomas William Shakespeare, 3rd Baronet of Lakenham a.k.a. Tom Shakespeare the sociologist and disability activist is recounting his experiences of NHS rehabilitation after spinal surgery.

This is a must read piece for anyone interested in the irrationality of health care systems and will also be an excellent basis for a discussion with students about the clash between reasonable client wishes and inflexible systems.

It was published on the 21st of October and I am sorry for not having spotted it and brought it to your attention earlier!
