    Long term health condition/disability ECF

    Current

      RUSU to campaign for the university to institute a policy for the existence of a long-term extenuating circumstances form (ECF) for those who have a long-term health condition or disability so that they do not have to keep putting in ECF's for the same condition. The ECF should work in collaboration with the Disability Advisory Service (DAS), counselling and GP services to use the information once so that students do not spend more time repeating the same information when it could instead be a record on their file.</p>

      Filling in an ECF as someone with a disability is arduous and takes more time than is necessary, causes more stress and for some can be quite costly in doctors notes. Students aren't always sure what evidence is allowable and often the doctor they can get to see might not be the right one and they still have to pay for a doctor's note for this. This is something I have been campaigning for and it is beyond what I can extend to fight for while completing a degree.</p>
