There is supposed to be a fast track system in my area to prevent lengthy stays in hospital Bed Blocking. You are triaged in A&E, if you have to stay in, then are sent to an initial 48 hour ward, quickly processed to the right service for your needs. If sent home there is a community care team who c...
My caree was severely disabled, wheelchair bound, when they were in hospital needed help going to the toilet, frequently the nurses were too busy. Was often in bed like stated for the convenience of the nurses, but could not get out of bed so was in bed for days, wired up catheter etc. Other patient...
I posted about my caree receiving an ESA form seeking more information about their circumstances 2015/2016. A long form asking a lot questions most not relevant to my caree, working, owning property abroad, savings, ISA's. Although I helped fill in the form, the form was sent back as it had not been...
I would just like to comment and say that the G.P. has to see a patient at least once a year to review the medication and check it is appropriate.

In the old days they had the time and staff to help you every step of the way, provide advocacy, attend benefit tribunials, do home visits. Now it...
When my caree was discharged without their medication, needed the bed as usual, a local taxi firm delivered the medication in the evening. I had a sneaky look in the taxi, quite a lot of medication to be delivered. It is not your fault if the medication was not ready, that is the hospitals job to ha...
Hi I have contacted Rethink but very little was sorted out, there is no Rethink in my area, I have heard Rethink can provide Advocacy but they didn't. I have spoken to a few other organisations who in turn have referred me to other organisations miles and miles away but no one can provide local help...
Carers can and do help with pet care, walking, feeding etc it can be added to the care plan. A lot of carers are pet lovers/pet owners themselves. There are many people who love dogs but cannot have one but would love to help look after a dog walk etc. Try your local vets, they might be able to help...
Wasn't there that fund to ensure unpaid carers could have a break, I read about 400 million pounds provided by the government to provide essential breaks.
