We have a MDT meeting tomorrow morning for continuing care for our Father/Father in Law. We emailed the coordinator/chair of the meeting 7 days ago saying we wanting to bring a professional note taker with us or to record the meeting. She queried why we wanted to do this and we sent a reply explaining why. We heard nothing so 5 days ago emailed her again saying as we had to book this person we were going ahead with this as we had not had a reply back. This afternoon less than 20 hours before the meeting we got an email from the Head of Commissioning at CCG saying we would not be allowed to have the note taker present nor could we record the meeting. Firstly why would we not be able to document the meeting? Cant find anything in the national framework/decision support tool/NHS England operating model for continuing care saying this is not possible. Secondly why did the big boss contact us not the coordinator/chair of the meeting? Is it because all along the process we have complained about documents being falsified?
