Has anybody heard of this report? Basically, the dept of health guidelines were revised in 2001 to reflect the Court of Appeal's descision in R v North and East Devon Health Authority, ex parte Coughlan, which held that the NHS must fund the placement of a person whose primary need is healthcare. My mother who has dementia has been in a nursing home since 1997. She has been assessed at the medium level for NHS funding for her Alzheimer's. I am trying to find out whether I could make a claim for her having to sell her property to fund her nursing home fees on this level of care. I have read that if there is a case to answer, then it is best to use solicitors who employ a 'no win, no fee' policy. Is there anyone out there who can advise me? I would especially be interested in anyone living in the Cheltenham/Gloucester area who can recommend a suitable solicitor who has/is dealing with this type of case.
