Wells-Next-The-Sea SEND Event feedback report November 2023

Healthwatch Norfolk visited an event for people with Special Educational Needs and Disabiliites (SEND), their families and carers in Wells-Next-The-Sea to hear their experiences of health and care.

People shared a range of experiences. Many related to the time taken to access a diagnosis and/or care, and the difficulties and frustrations it causes.  One person also raised concerns about the lack of availability of BSL interpretation at a GP surgery appointment.

I have an 18-year-old-daughter who has never been formally diagnosed and a 17-year-old daughter who was just diagnosed this year. It took 10 years for us to get her diagnosed.
