[access-uk] Re: long canes

Deaf people indeed do not have to pay for hearing aids. However the waiting 
list can be years long and the choice is extremely limited. If anything outside 
the narrow confines of the NHS supply is wanted one has to pay for their own. I 
wear 2 aids but my personal needs are such I purchased my own.

What disease did "cured" ham actually have?

  And further to my earlier post re wheelchairs, deaf people do not have to pay 
for their hearing aids or do they?  Some of you on the list probably have 
hearing aids so I am sure I will get a relyable answer.

    it is another inequality in provision we have to deal with Eleanor.  this 
is why the RNIB put their prices of canes up some years ago to prompt social 
services into purchasing them for their blind citizens.

    People with wheelchairs do not have to buy their own.

      Our Social Services will supply the first cane and a tip of your choice 
but all subsequent canes you buy yourself. A lack of finds was the reason and 
no-one of my acquaintance here has had a cane from them for around 6 years.

        I think social services would supply you Andy.  GDBA supplied me 
between 1st and 2nd guide dog.

          Hi all -

          Since choosing no longer to be a guide dog owner, the GDBA have 
supplied me with a long cane [Revolution with roller tip], but now that I need 
a new tip, they say I have to fund my own, or try social services.

          I've just looked at the RNIB website, under long canes, and can see 
my Revolution cane listed. Firstly, I assume I would be charged the VAT free 
price? and secondly, can somebody tell me about the different tips for this 
cane? I can't quite figure out the advantages of one over another, like I say, 
I have been using the roller tip, which seems to have good durability for 
street work, what are the pros and cons of the other tips over the roller tip?

          Thanks for any help -

          Andy
