I would like NHS to be fair and open by providing balanced advise about continuing health care (CHC ) to everyone. We are in the process of applying for CHC for my mother and have so far been met by a deluge of misinformation and lack of fair advise. We need to get the powers within te NHS to provide full and unbiased information and follow The National Framework.
Why is this important?
To ensure that free care is offered to alI patients who need 24 hour care for what ever reason are provided with information about continuing healthcare. Dementia care is a prime example of this. As a family we have had to fight to get this process under way and sadly it appears each council cherry picks bits of the The National Framework to suit themselves, even though The Framework states different And is backed up by caselaw. Nobody should have to see a loved one fade away in front of them and then have to deal will bullish bureaucracy.
