We have ( unsurprisingly ) been told that my MIL does not qualify for CHC... My partner has advised the CHC co ordinator at the hospital that she is disputing this and will not accept the FNC that has been offered, also an incontinence payment.... my MIL has been diagnosed with vascular dementia, is having TIA's and has become bed ridden due to having no core strength any more. She is doubly …

NHS Complaints

Wed 25 May 2016 - 7:41 by Unbelievable

Has anyone been able successfully to get a CCG against whom a complaint has been lodged to engage properly with the Department of Health’s complaints process, and deal with the complaint quickly rather than delaying for as long as possible in order, ultimately, to prolong the complaint being considered by the Ombudsman?

Mon 9 May 2016 - 12:59 by Unbelievable

My grandad has been in care with dementia for 16 months now, and i have refused to pay a single penny for his care due to the points that Stephen raises on here regularly.

Assessment Process

Sun 1 May 2016 - 6:55 by vikki67

Hi Could anyone clarify the assessment process and how it is legally supposed to be conducted. My partner has been told by different members of the health care teams that her mother needs 24 hour care in a nursing home. A meeting was arranged with a doctor to discuss her mothers conditions. She has become immobile after having tia's.... which now no one will discuss and keep saying she can't walk …
