Det är inte bättre i England. De med inlärningsproblem diskrimineras

21 Jun

Guardian rapporterar om National Health Service som sköter den offentliga sjukvården i Storbritannien:

”Almost half of doctors and a third of nurses said they had witnessed a patient with a learning disability being treated ”with neglect or a lack of dignity or receiving poor quality care”, according to a survey by a leading charity out today.

The opinion poll of 1,000 NHS staff by Mencap, which campaigns on behalf of people with learning disabilities, shows a pattern of poor care for some of society’s most vulnerable patients.

Almost four out of 10 doctors said that people with a learning disability are discriminated against in the NHS – and 46% said they received a ”poorer standard” of healthcare than the rest of the population. There are about 1.5 million people in Britain with learning disabilities, the best known is Down’s syndrome.

Att ignorera människor med olika former av inlärningsproblem och dysfunktioner tycks vara världsvid. Det som borde göras var att FN tog ordentliga krafttag men då måste de också ha makt vilket de tyvärr inte har idag.
