HSE asks boy (5) to prove he 'hasn't grown a leg'

OK, well all know the public service in general and the HSE in particular are staffed by bureaucratic idiots, but this one takes the biscuit;
A mother has told how she must constantly "prove" to the HSE that her five-year-old son "hasn't grown a leg", so she can claim medical support.
Newstalk106 have been covering this story and others like it the past couple of days and apparently this story is not unique - another person has to prove their son still has autism every year or so while another has to prove her son still has cerebral palsy.

No wonder the system is so clogged, such a mind numbing waste of everyones time!
