This 10 minute comedy drama introduces us to Alan, a hotel manager, on the day he finds out that he has a common but life-altering health condition. The film explores how attitudes to disability and long-term health conditions can affect people's chances of getting and keeping a job - irrespective of their actual impact on work. And how the reactions of those around us - family, friends and work colleagues - can make us fearful of revealing important aspects of our lives.

Place of publication:

Under the Care Act 2014, assessments should reflect more accurately a comprehensive picture of people's needs - including how they change over time. In this film two people, one with mental health needs, the other with a physical disability, talk about their conditions, assessment, how their needs can fluctuate and the impact this has on the level of care and support they need. The film illustrates how the new requirement aims to recognise people as individuals by endorsing a much-needed degree of flexibility and responsive care, as well as offering valuable support for people with mental health and physical health conditions which may vary over time.
