Hi everyone I'm reaching out as I'm struggling a little atm. Having issues to get a ramp at front of flats and waiting for a diagnosis about my bowel and don't have many close friends. Any advice. I don't know where to go. I'm also trying to get a cooker replacement from curry's so I'm feeling frazzled!

    Hi @SylviaMorrison72 :) It sounds like you've got a lot on at the moment!

    What kind of accommodation are you in? Who is responsible for getting the ramp? 

    Do you know how long it might be until your hear back about a diagnosis?

    Hi and welcome

    I would suggest you contact an OT through social services regarding the ram as they can do a needs assessment and either put a request in fr adaptions or provide a portable ramp. You can refer yourself for a needs assessment on the gov website

    As for your diagnosis you need to chase up your GP or consultant.
