Denial of medical treatment part of shocking trend

We are dealing with a disturbing number of cases of people denied essential medical treatment because they are unable to wear a face covering.  It's hard to keep ourselves together when we are hearing such shocking and dangerous examples of prejudice and discrimination towards people unable to wear face masks.  This is in addition to people prevented from accessing basic provisions and being harassed when peacably entering retail and services premises.  This trend in society could reasonably be compared with some of the darkest days of human history. 

That has meant the kind messages of support and encouragement we have received are even more of a boost. 

If we have still not got to your case we are sorry.  Please continue to bear with us.  We have taken on extra staff but are still a tiny company and have never experienced anything like this before.

Face coverings discrimination crisis

Last week we received many harrowing cases of extreme disability discrimination.  People being refused medical treatment, food, banking, transport and other services on an unprecedented scale.  Harassment has become everyday with people peaceably going about their business being prevented from doing so by staff and even, in some cases, the public.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has written to supermarkets warning them that they should not be discriminatiing against disabled people unable to wear face covering.

We have three members of staff.  EHRC has many more.  We will get back to you as soon as we can.  In the meantime you may not need us if the EHRC agrees to take your case - it has a legal department.

The EHRC should be made aware of your situation anyway.  Contact details here .

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have left messages of encouragement and support.  In such dark times this has been a great boost - much appreciated.
