Rach W started this petition to NHS and

So I am a 33 year old mum and wife. I suffer with NEAD. On March 15th there was a major incident at my kids school. To cut a long story short, I had a few seizures on the school grounds. School staff are so inexperienced, unsympathetic and literally did not know what to do! It’s that serious the school is now under investigation with the academy trust and I have a meeting to resolve all issues caused. 

One thing I have to do is, put to the board actions or resolutions to the points I have made, that I feel needs sorting out ASAP. One of my issues that all sufferers and carers will face is the lack of understanding, empathy and sheer ignorance to our diagnosis. Now what we as sufferers DONT need is ambulances and medical staff being called for no reason just because school staff don’t know what the hell to do. And this solution is so easy, so simple, but yet could help save so many seizure sufferers, LEARN ABOUT SEIZURES AND WHAT TO DO AND WHEN TO CALL FOR HELP!! Do not call 999 unless the sufferer has taken a serious fall, hit there head or they haven’t come out of a seizure or it’s longer or different then normal or you know that this seizure isn’t right for the sufferer. 

and this is my goal, to get as many people to sign this petition, so children, teens and adults alike can get the help and support that we need without being embarrassed, scared or alone. To have a seizure and no one knows what to do.. it’s the most scary thing in the world to even think about.

Think about it in my shoes.. I go into my kids school expecting to be kept safe,  To know if you have a seizure that the staff will know exactly what to do.. not to be picked up off the floor by your husband because the school have completely broken all trust and several safeguarding, health and safety and confidentiality rules!! 

I’m asking as a sufferer, please sign this petition and help me get more awareness and make sure all sufferers are safe and kept safe out and about in public spaces. The more people know what to do the more it won’t be a embarrassment for us having the seizures and like wise for passers by that way more support will be given and less time wasting emergency services when they aren’t needed.

please sign and share this petition.. all the help is greatly appreciated..

 

thank you xx
