MD sufferers need correct wheelchair for independence

A sufferer of Muscular Dystrophy from Coventry says she has not got the right wheelchair, and needs the correct one to be an independent person.

Amritpal Kaur is backing a campaign by an MD charity today that is demanding better wheelchair services on the NHS.

The campaign comes after a report by the Muscular Dystrophy Charity, called 'Get Moving', which says the waiting list is too long for people to get the correct wheelchair, and the costs are too high.
