An Auckland father says he’s devastated after a two-year struggle with health authorities trying to get safety glass installed at his home to protect his disabled son from injuring himself and others. Zafar Gondal’s 20-year-old son Diam is autistic, has epilepsy, and is deaf and blind. Gondal is a full-time carer for his son, Newshub says, but getting assistance has caused him significant stress. He likened dealing with the DHB, the Health Ministry, and its contractor, Accessable, to “going around in circles.”
