HiThanks Dave63. Rants are helpful! It all sounds very much like my experience. I hope you win your appeal.
I’m sorry to hear your experience and I hope you won your appeal. We are currently going through the CHC process and it’s been horrific. I cannot believe how the process is carried out and how they are not reviewed themselves . We had the assessor in mums DST that had never met mum and the other professionals had not seen her for a year,yet questioned us as if we were on trial and we are there for 24 hrs a day . It wouldn’t be allowed else where in the nhs, so why are they allowed to carry out this process in this way. My mum I feel for them became an insignificant object in a horrendous process. How is this allowed to happen ? The outcome will be what it will be, but the process should be carried out in a respectful , supportive manner and for us it wasn’t. It adds stress and anxiety to what should be precious quality time with a very special person. There needs to be change soon.
