The cost of disability
I have one main gripe about society's treatment of the disabled and that is the prices that disability shops and the makers of disability equipment charge for essential items, as soon as the word disability/disabled is put in front of anything, the price doubles or even trebles. There are shops closing down on every high street but disability shops are springing up like weeds.One of the worst offenders is Millercare. I require new tyres for my Pride wheelchair, you can't deal with Pride direct, you have to deal with an agent, £75 per tyre plus fitting costs, you can buy them from China cheaper or e-bay. It just disgusts me and these shops should get the bad publicity they deserve.
