    • Ok, I will get on to that and send her another letter to this effect. She may not respond, but we will have to cross that bridge when it comes to it
    • Sorry for the late reply.    if you have done your SAR and the complaint has been logged, you may have some success yet.   i has a car about the same time, was also missold. Even though I had a payout due to redundancy.   wrote directly to DAF, address can be found on here. With details of claim, interest calculations and payout deducted, which they turned down. In my case it was clear a different hand had completed the paperwork.    Complaint ultimately rejected.   entered a county court claim, no defence from DAF / Provident. Asked for a CCJ which also not defended. Court upheld and got cheque in the post a few months later.    they could have settled for less, avoided court fees and put a gagging order on me. But hey ho!   keep at it!

    • Thank you Bazza. My only point with the NHS link was about hand washing and how quite a few of us may not be doing it as effectively as we might.   HB
    • HB, the advice for people in their homes and for healthcare workers will be quite different.   Homes: handwashing, “cough Hygiene” (and “sneeze hygiene”), and limit contacts with the unwell. Likely people will want to use masks, but ordinary surgical masks won’t do much against small droplets, only larger droplets / secretions. FFP3 masks offer protection but are more appropriate to the healthcare setting (See below for why)   healthcare : expect use of PPE. Faceshields or goggles, to prevent secretion splashed to the eyes. Water impervious aprons to protect clothing (to avoid later transfer from clothes to self) FFP3 masks (the difference being that in the healthcare setting FFP3 users should be ‘fit tested’ so know how to get the mask fitted to them as an individual, and know how to get the mask on and off without contaminating their hands). Gloves will feature, not instead of hand washing, but for getting the FFP3 masks on and off safely, prior to hand washing on mask removal. (During the SARS episode in Toronto there was a shortage of FFP3 masks. People would re-use masks as there weren’t enough for a fresh one every time. Hence the need to protect oneself on putting on the mask, too. if there is a similar outbreak of 2019-nCoV, the same limited supplies can be expected.)   Hope this helps. I’m not going to get into protracted argument or discussion here, take this info if you wish, don’t if you don’t want to.

Hi

 

sorry but I am not allowed to post in Data protection so team please transfer anywhere you feel appropriate.

 

My question:

My father is currently in hospital with Alhzeimer… been there six months and been assessed as eligible for full NHS funding... but the team who find care homes are messing [changed - dx] us about I think because of the costs involved (they are not allowed to do that).

 

I have power of attorney on financial matters... I need to fully understand why they are stalling... can I issue a GDPR on behalf of my father iven my Power of Attorney??

 

ANY help is appreciated

 

thanks

I worked (non-clinician) in a mental health NHS trust for 25 years.

 

 

May I ask is there any particular reason why you are so keen to move your father out of NHS care into a care (or should it be nursing) home? Or is it the trust that wants him out?

 

 

Although I've had family experience of excellent homes, they are not all like that. On the balance of probability I would wager that NHS care would be better. (unfortunately there are poor NHS trusts out there too.)

 

 

If a home is found I would try to ensure you visit first and form your own opinion. My MiL wasn't in NHS care but was suffering from Lewy Body dementia and eventually had to go into a care home. My wife and her two brothers visited half a dozen homes before choosing one.

 

 

I know this thread is a couple of weeks old, but thought my experience might be helpful to the OP

My issue was with the brokerage team not allowing dad to be discharged into the only wonderful care home I found out of the many poor and average ones I checked... After six months on a ward in a hospital and after a long letter of complaint they allowed him to be discharged into the home I selected... FINALLY

 

the ward staff were wonderful... They helped and supported us through a tough time...
