  1. It's probably too late - and if it is I don't think it matters a great deal as I'm sure it's been covered adequately already - but there is one particular aspect of this that nags away at me and might be worth including if not already covered. And that's to do with the conduct or method behind the ombudsman's decision. The decision seems to be predicated on the finding that Aviva correctly followed their internal procedures and policies, and that therefore they did nothing wrong. This seems to me to be blatantly flawed logic in the conduct of the investigation and leads to a manifestly unfair outcome for the OP. It would appear fro

  5. I know about Operation Cygnus but I hadn't heard of Exercise Alice. Someone has obtained FoI documents of the report that recommends adequate PPE, contact tracing and restricting entry from virus hotspots in the rest of the world. It looks as if it was completely ignored. Coronavirus report warned of impact on UK four years before pandemic | Health policy | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Exclusive: Report from planning exercise in 2016 alerted government of need to stockpile PPE and set up contact tracing system

  6. See above, my Q.2 was IF the GP’s disagrees. you say they “can disagree”. It doesn’t matter that they CAN disagree (which no one doubts). What matters is if they DO disagree (and you seem to be studiously ignoring that question!) I doubt anyone here will be able to help until that is addressed. Edited to add: no useful info re: capacity added since May, and as time goes on, if the relative has more and more conditions, the likelihood of capacity can only decrease.

  8. Based on the suggestion by my site team colleague @unclebulgaria67I have introduced an amendment – coloured in red. Obviously change the colour back to black but I think that you can consider that the letter is now complete and that you should send it off by email and also by recorded delivery.

  10. I really feel for your relative and hope we can help. The dogs could be rehomed. They need to speak to people like the RSPCA, Dogs Trust and others. HB

  11. It all sounds awful and I suppose it's not an uncommon story. There are quite a lot of issues here. Clearly there is the economic abuse and we can certainly give some help and support on that. Additionally there is the drink-driving charge and this property not a lot we can do about that except that the first defence that comes to my mind is "self defence". If the police do decide to pursue it and your relative ends up in front of a magistrate's court then it says to me that that is the best defence that they should discuss it with a solicitor as it appears that you have already involved a solicitor. One thing you should be aware of is tha

  12. Looking after private pals for doing nowt: "The Treasury agreed in March 2020 to pay for a deal to block-book the entire capacity of all 7,956 beds in England’s 187 private hospitals along with their almost 20,000 staff to help supplement the NHS’s efforts to cope with the unfolding pandemic. It is believed to have cost £400m a month. However, the Centre for Health and the Public Interest’s report (Pdf) says that on 39% of days between March 2020 and March this year, private hospitals treated no Covid patients at all and on a further 20% of days they cared for only one person. Overall, they provided only 3,000 of the 3.6m Covid bed days in t
