I have just received notification from the Court of Protection that they have received my application. They have issued a case number in writing that is practically illegible. It was unclear if one of the digits was a number or a letter because it is joined to the previous digit, as many of the other figures are. I could not risk completing the other numerous forms without checking this, so I have just spent 20 minutes waiting on the phone for someone to respond to my call so I could ask them to read the number to me. I asked them to inform the person that wrote this that they need to make their handwriting clearer. They said they would, but I doubt it will happen. Had it been my writing that was illegible they would have returned the documents to me refusing to process them.
