As regulars know I recently lost my Mum. I have been doing a lot of admin work to sort out all her affairs and it’s looking like she has paid out approx £75,000 in care home fees after selling her home. She had Alzheimers, had bowel cancer twice, had kidney problems, arthritis in her spine and other health issues and never got any financial help at all.

A woman I went to school with had a massive stroke and is now in a care home and she gets all her care paid for.

When my head is a bit straighter I am going to look into getting back some or all of the money she paid out because my Mum’s care was definitely health care not social care.

So, so sorry for your situation. My Mum suffered severe Strokes May 2012, but coz she has savings + owns her own home they have targeted her mercilessly.

Please keep an eye on the CHC Campaign, as their Legal Team are confident they have enough evidence to right this terrible wrong for everyone that has been affected. They have regular updates on https://www.nhschcscandal.co.uk/post/le ... ip-mathias

Retired police fight to end health funding scandal

AS MANY as 93,000 retired police have thrown their weight behind a campaign to halt the scandal of charging pensioners for free NHS healthcare. Another 53,000 retired civil servants have joined them as the Daily Express crusade gathers momentum.

I have read this week that CCCG's are going to be phased out this autumn. I wonder how CHC will be managed then? I was so I'll when mum died I employed a solicitor to deal with a claim, but he was useless, and retired having had £10,000! Faced with the stark choice of giving up, or a breakdown, I had to give up a claim for £40,000 to be refunded.

tumn. I wonder how CHC will be managed then? I was so I'll when mum died I employed a solicitor to deal with a claim, but he was useless, and retired having had £10,000! Faced with the stark choice of giving up, or a breakdown, I had to give up a claim for £40,000 to be refunded.
So sorry for what you've had to go through BB. If it's any consolation, keep an eye out on the Crowdfunding page, https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/the-n ... e-scandal/ - it's a hard slog, they've said it's a marathon not a sprint. Or even email Dawn who's part of the team managing the campaign; nhschcscandal@gmail.com. I emailed her recently asking how the Campaign is going, the response;

'The campaign is going well thank you. We are waiting for the judge to approve the hearing. Not sure when that will be, but we have to assume in the next month or so.'

Nevermind Hot Cross Buns, gonna have to keep everything crossed🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞
I'll definitely email Dawn.
Mum had 28 different illnesses listed on her Critical Care Sheet in case an ambulance was called.
I asked the CHC assessor to look at it. She refused!
I explained to the assessor that mum had a progressive illness called hyperostosis.
Assessor had never heard of it, so I spelt it out to her, and suggested that if she didn't know what it was, she needed to find out. It wasn't even mentioned on her assessment sheet.
Risk of falling was so great that the OT banned mum from even trying to stand, insisting that she was hoisted with 2 nurses. The assessor said the risk of falling was minimal with 2 nurses and a hoist, and so it went on with other domains!!

Critical Care, that says it all. Your Mum should have automatically qualified for CHC, that is utterly disgraceful. It's heartbreaking the amount of people that are forced to fall through the net coz Assessors haven't a clue doing their jobs.

Assessors should know anyone having health needs equal to or greater than Pamela Coughlan should get CHC, that is what she fought for, but sadly they dismiss it as outdated... they are the ones that are outdated.
