A Tory flagship borough?

A shocking video has been published today highlighting the plight of a 37 year old woman who suffers from Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). The woman who lives on her own in the borough of Westminster receives only one hour of care per day.  Symptoms of CRPS are continuous, intense pain out of proportion to the severity of the injury, which gets worse rather than better over time.

With so little support from the council the woman has to depend on the goodwill of others for shopping. Because of her injuries she is forced to eat her food from a bowl on the floor in the corner of her room.

Thanks with help from the councils Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for finance and performance Barbara ‘Babs’ Moorhouse Westminster Council achieved a massive under spend of its Adult Social Care budget by £4.4 million in 2011/12.

Babs must be chuffed for such sterling work for the community, but perhaps she needs to take time out to think of the consequences of her empire building when juggling the council’s finances.
