Text of Petition:                     

Our daughter Olivia is 17yrs old, has complex medical health needs and requires 24hr care. She is being put at risk on a daily basis of catching this deadly virus with no testing in place!!


Please, please sign!!!! The community staff mentioned are frontline workers looking after the vulnerable, they do all personal care and most tasks in the home that is required in the hospital environment.


Additional Information:

NHS sites have weekly testing

Care homes have weekly testing

Special school residential homes have weekly testing


I have contacted PHW, they have referred to our local health board but they have REFUSED to protect Olivia and test her staff!!
