My father, deaf, blind and suffering dementia, was deemed to have a very good case for ongoing CHC. The case started in August 2016 with an Advocate who said he had a good case. I paid for 2.5 years more than £15000 and the case was rejected locally and today it was rejected by NHS England as a result of our appeal. Dad met most of the NHS criteria at the level suggesting funding would be put in place. It was still rejected. The summary is that NHS operate as they see fit, rejecting and dismissing and ignoring their own guidelines and it costs only a substantial amount of money and a lot of angst and heartache by families. The Advocates are the only ones who win, despite their saying it is a good case, the criteria judging it is a good case. Avoid this dreadful situation. You cannot win.
