    Has anyone read the article in yesterdays Sunday Express
    re "Vile plot to cheat our old and sick".

    The article is about how 700,00 are forced to sell their homes or use life savings to pay for NHS care that should be provided.

    Many of the people in the article had/have Alzheimer's or Dementia.
    The newspaper is asking people to tell them their experiences by calling
    0871 520 7075 or e-mailing care@express.co.uk .

    Lets hope the entire newspaper industry takes up the banner of dementia patients being robbed by T Blairs government to pay for care that should be free

    Here's the place to go if you want to have your say on this issue. The Department of Health is asking for contributions to a consultation about continuing care funding criteria and you can find the details including how to respond on www.dh.gov.uk/consultations. The closing date for responses is 22 September 2006.

    Whether they'll take any notice is another matter..... but then, if we say nothing we get nowhere, so it's always worth having a pop.
