Having met with Newlands and other senior AWP staff at a poorly advertised AWP feedback session at West Swindon ASDA last week, where a number of patients couldnt even find the first floor meeting room as no signs or meeter greeters were there !, several patients and carers attending found it extremely upsetting and depressing to hear the feedback, which I hope was fully and accurately noted by the AWP minute taker who was present and will appear in the AWP record of the meeting which they said was going to be sent to all who attended. We heard of horrendous multiple failures of AWP extending over many years, and we heard about the NEGLECT and ABUSE these patients have been, and in some cases STILL ARE being subjected to to this day - I trust those VERY SENIOR AWP staff present will now formally raise concerns and alerts to MARK DEAN at AWP or even to ther professional bodies - OR WILL THAT TOO BE COVERED UP AND ALLOWED TO CONTINUE ?
