I believe that the funding application for Continuing Healthcare Funding was dismissed before we had our full assessment ( DST) Meeting. 1. We were told before mum was discharged from hospital that she was not entitled to CHC. Mum had a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s for 5 years with psychotic episodes and continual hallucinations. This decision from the multi-disciplinary team ( MDT) that mum was not entitled to CHC was taken without meeting mum or talking to her son and his partner. 2. When this was challenged, a full assessment was agreed- this took place 8 months later. At that DST meeting a decision was taken by the MDT ( one nurse, one social student social worker) decided against CHC funding . We discovered after this meeting that the social worker had not had sight of any of our medical and social evidence. In a freedom of information request to the NHS we were told they do not collect data on the number of people with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s denied CHC funding. We believe there is discrimination again people with Alzheimer’s in this country. This must be investigated further.
