I see. I remember it all too well with my husband. Took me 18months to get through to staff the hubby could not cut up meat with a fork and the use of one hand only! Or that he could not hold a yoghurt pot, so please put yoghurt in a dish. Eventually he was on the thickening in drinks and soft food options. Went in one day to find his cup of tea was cold and like jelly.
Im so sorry you are going through this and fighting for what seems common sense.
Just wish I could sweet talk the Care Agency on board to common-sense; not exactly rocket science. But unfortunately they treat me as interfering, by brushing me aside with 'your Mum's got Mental Capacity'; a trick social services passed on to them.

That's why I'm trying to see if I can get Advocacy support, but if it's only under the Care Act, may be limited. As needing help with CHC, as they too disrespect my involvement to suit themselves.
As needing help with CHC.

Thanks Chris, got all the links from previous responses re Grogan/Coughlan case law. I got a FOI request asking percentage over the last 5 years that qualified for CHC: 10% was the response - over the past 5 years. I've read somewhere they have training days to learn tactics fobbing off with excuses those that need health care to prevent them qualifying. And that's what Tax Payers money goes towards..?

Previous Carers Centre' Manager told me you'd have to be at deaths' door to qualify. Current Manager just the other day told me Bury CCG is lax in serious delays. Those that do qualify, funding is only for very short time. Then they have to re-apply all over again. Totally against the NHS's National Framework Guidelines. Wish I had a silver tongue of a legal eagle, then I could bring them to account myself. It'd be worth all the stress, which is to the point of not feeling life is worth it once my Mum's gone - who'd wanna live in such a heartless world? Everything hinges on Rear Admiral Matthias's quest to shake the system up.

Remember Gerry Robinson who investigated hospitals, and made savings? Need to get him investigating CCG's, there must be tonnes of savings to be made. Can't find his contact details anywhere.
Noted ... back to that infamous RATIONING thread for confirmation of your experience ?

( Also contains the latest House Committee report ... for what that's worth. )

Gerry Robinson ... 3 part BBC program on the NHS ... " Can he fix it ? " ... now , some 12 years in the past :
