Name and Shame Report

Greenwich and Bexley Hospice, Nov 2014

Seetec claim to reimburse travel costs or provide travel permits to those who cant afford to outlay the cost. However when I attended at the stated day and time to collect my travel permit nobody was there. Waited around for over 30 mins but was told that if I didnt make it to my placement on time I would be santioned, so I was forced to walk the two miles to my placement and two miles home at the end of the day. When I called Seetec out on this the woman just shrugged and sniggered. I am young and healthy but I struggled to walk that far, another guy in his 60s was also forced to walk to his placement that day, I wouldnt be surprised if he had a heart attack or serious health issues as a result. I just dont understand how they can justify treating people like this
