Families of disabled people tell BBC of battle for NHS care support

Today, the BBC reports that more than 100 families looking after severely disabled adults and children outside hospital, have told the BBC that the NHS is failing to provide enough vital support.

Many got in touch after a BBC report about a mother left on her own for long periods to care for her son.

The NHS says help is based on individual needs and government guidelines, ensuring consistency.

However, some families describe the system as adversarial.
