SEND meeting

For all parents with SEND children in the area, there is going to be a meeting, organised by SEND Crisis Tower Hamlets*, together with the National Education Union on

19. November 2019, at Oaklands School, start 7pm.

Oaklands School, Old Bethnal Green Road, London E2 6PR.

The event will focus on the rights of the child with other invited speakers including Amanda Elliot from Hackney SEND Crisis (who have recently taken the govt to court), local councillors, the NEU joint general secretaries, and of course Tower Hamlets parents speaking about their experiences.

Worrying breakdown in local services

I have never experienced such a breakdown in local services.

  1. Our local secondary school, Raine’s Foundation is under threat of closure
  2. 2. Our local GP, The Mission Practise is refusing* to give patients appointments.
  3. The London Chest Hospital was closed some time ago.

Taking this as a sign of a reduction in local services, residents should be concerned and make enquiries to their local Member of Parliament, their Councillor and perhaps the Mayor of Tower Hamlets as to why our local services are not delivering the care our community needs.

*Online appointments are normally not available and when ringing, one can not get an advance appointment all times.
