Some of you may be aware that a review into therapies in Richmond and Kingston is being undertaken by Achieving for Children and the CCG, in advance of recommissioning the service by April 2020. This review has been rumbling on for a while but some members of the Phyz group had a chance to meet James Thomas recently (DIrector of Children's Services for Richmond) and asked whether our group could be part of this to provide a view from a physical disability perspective (many of us are "heavy users" of the therapy services).
So on Friday 13th September the Phyz group will hold a meeting at Skylarks where representatives of the therapies review will come and discuss it with us.
This is important as whatever decisions are taken could have a significant impact (either positive or negative) on the way that therapies are provided to our children both at school and at home (through the community teams) and in special schools or specialist resource provisions.
Please, if you are a Richmond (or Kingston) parent could you put the date of September 13th in your diary to come along. This review will be important.
If you are unable to attend but would like to provide input through a survey, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
