Housebound woman 'forced to crowdfund' for wheelchair

Housebound woman 'forced to crowdfund' for wheelchair A woman who is housebound due to a rare genetic condition has been refused an electric wheelchair on the NHS, and has resorted to crowdfunding.

Charlotte Walton, 24, from Newbury, Berkshire, has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and can no longer use one of her arms and both her legs.

She said "life is currently passing by" because she is "stuck in her home".

Her local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group apologised and asked her to "get in touch" to discuss her situation. BBC News
