My OH is currently in an NHS Mental Health Unit and I gather he can now be discharged. I am his partner and hold EPOA which has been accepted in every situation so far (registered with OPG 2015). I have been advised by our Mental Health Practitioner that only one NH can meet his needs. We have had two failed placements during the last six months the last involving physical removal by paramedics /police to Hospital and subsequent transferral to the current NHS unit. I keep in touch with the selected NH as there is a waiting list. A CHC MDT was held yesterday which, as anticipated, was refused, but FNC was given. I worked comprehensively to prepare for this and may or may not appeal. I contacted the NH who explained that FNC is added added to their weekly care fee, ie the £1200 estimated weekly fee goes up to £1358.16 and the FNC of £158.16 is deducted. I asked if their contract paperwork could be emailed in anticipation of a place becoming available. They know we are self funding and the usual question of can you fund for two years is top of the list but it then goes on to request supporting bank statements, plus other details regarding investments, stocks and shares, pensions and an agreement to provide a legal charge over property(we are not married but I live there). I am a little shocked by all this but should I be? Any advice is more than welcome!
