Hi all.

As I don't know how to post a copy of the open letter Rear Admiral Matthias posted on CareToBeDifferent Facebook page to the Equality and Human Rights Commission; I include the link: https://www.facebook.com/CareToBeDiffer ... =3&theater

From Rear Admiral Mathias:

Update - NHS Continuing Healthcare Scandal (CHC) - 2019/20 Q3 Statistics

I have just analysed the recently released NHS CHC statistics for 2019/20 Q3. It is of note that the Prime Minister's secretary and personal advisors are now receiving this data.

The latest statistics show that the shocking CHC funding 'postcode lottery' continues with a massive variation between the award rates of the 191 CCGs, ranging from 211 to 12 per 50,000 of population - a difference of 17 fold. These huge variations cannot be explained by socio-economic and health demographics. As just one example, in 2018 the CQC reported: "Wiltshire CCG system leaders were unable to describe why their CHC award rate was so low". The NHS refers to CCGs with unexplained low CHC award rates as 'outliers'. In the real world this means that thousands of old, ill and vulnerable people have been (and continue to be) unlawfully denied the healthcare funding to which they are entitled, with many being unlawfully forced to sell their homes. This is a contravention of human rights on a massive scale.

These latest statistics also prove, once again, that the claims made by the NHS and DHSC that CHC eligibility numbers have increased over the last few years are false. 2015/16 Q3 data shows 62,283 were eligible (68.4 per 50,000 of population) and the 2019/20 Q3 data shows that 55,156 people were eligible (57.38 per 50,000 of population). All quarterly data points show the same pattern (see graph). This is set against the backdrop of an ageing population, with experts stating that numbers should have been increasing.

CHC funding is a matter of law and is not discretionary. If the DHSC or NHS disagree with this, they should give their reasons why so that it can be tested in court.

CHC eligibility numbers - need to checkout their Facebook page.

I challenge Simon Stevens, Matt Hancock or Chris Wormald to disprove any of the above statements or the accuracy of the graph. To date, assertions made by health ministers and NHS officials have been disingenuous and inaccurate. There have been clear attempts to obfuscate - hardly surprising given the pressure to suppress what is very probably the biggest financial scandal in the history of the NHS and one that has caused so much distress to so many people when they are at their most vulnerable.
Just found the following update of Rear Admiral Matthias's Campaign on the CHC Scandal on CareToBeDifferent's Facebook;

Fantastic! The more the merrier, we've all had enough of this injustice and inhumanity when those at the top are profiting from immorality.
Update on The NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Scandal

Dear supporter,

In the last few weeks the legal team has done a huge amount of work, with invaluable input from the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA). They are a leading member of the CHC Alliance (17 charities) and experts on the legal complexities of CHC and how CCGs routinely flout the law. The comprehensive legal package (totalling about 70 pages) is nearing completion and looks very compelling. There is greater emphasis on the government's failure to regulate NHS England and in turn, the failure of NHS England to regulate CCGs to ensure they comply with the law. Given the significant quantity of evidence, the QC considers it necessary to give the government a further opportunity to respond, prior to formally applying to the court for a Judicial Review early in the New Year.

I raised this postcode lottery issue with my MP, Desmond Swayne. Not interested.
The only "joke" I can reliably remember, is that if you pinned a blue Tory rosette on a New Forest donkey, the local Conservative voters would vote for it!!

Know what you mean BB. The whole political system isn't fit for purpose - I asked my Mum's Conservative MP for assistance. Their feeble response: they can 'only recommend' - weak as dishwater; they don't know they are born.
