Episode 3 - The OMG test and why ‘care must be fair’
September 2018
NHS commissioning groups are responding to budget cuts by capping injured people’s Continuing Health Care packages. This is preventing many people with severe disability from receiving the care they need at home.

Our guest

Daniel Burden is Head of Public Affairs and Policy at the Spinal Injuries Association. He became spinal cord injured at T6 after an accident in Egypt. He returned to work two years later as an Access & Partnerships Officer in local government.

Daniel now manages the Spinal Injuries Association's (SIA) Public Affairs Team, which is responsible for all the charity’s campaigning work which includes campaigns for specialist SCI Health Services and NHS Continuing Healthcare.
