Text of Petition   

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to review the way parents and families, particularly those with disabled children, are treated by public services including the NHS, schools and social services.


Families are being wrongly threatened and treated badly by professionals such as social services, doctors, nurses and staff in schools. This must stop.

·  ask whether she has asked the Public Services Ombudsman to investigate her concerns that complaints procedures have not been satisfactory;


· advise that there is little that it is able to do to take forward petitions that relate to individual cases and circumstances and that, therefore, it has agreed to close the petition; and


·  suggest that, if there are specific changes that the petitioner wishes to see made to public sector complaints processes, that she considers raising them through her local representatives or through another petition.
