Description:
I have pleasure in submitting to you the Report of the Review Group on Health and Personal Social Services for People with Physical and Sensory Disabilities, Towards an Independent Future. The task of the Review Group was to examine the current provision of health services to people with physical or sensory disabilities and recommend how such services should be developed to meet more effectively their needs and those of their families. Our Report is the first detailed review of services for persons with physical and sensory disabilities since the publication ofthe Green Paper Towards a Full Life in 1984. The main thrust of our Report is the development of services to enable people with a physical or sensory disability to live as independently as possible in the community. We recommend that priority be given to the provision of more day care, respite care, nursing and therapy services, personal assistants and residential accommodation to achieve this goal. The Review Group attaches great importance to integrating services for people with disabilities with mainstream services wherever possible.
