My bad, sorry @luggy, just gone through my emails with FD and the lady who represented us at the LRM wasn't a nurse. She was however extremely experienced with LRM's and IRP's and it definitely showed during the meeting. I'm convinced that without her help we wouldn't have had a successful outcome.FD have never mentioned to me that a nurse would be present at the LRM. FD's representative at the LRM was to be the lady who has been handling mum's case, although I know a nurse did an analysis of mum's DST and made recommendations. It all hinges on those 4 key indicators.
You are absolutely not being too impatient. Whatever the reason for the delays it's not your fault, it's not your mums fault, it's not FD's fault it's one hundred percent the fault of the ICB.Perhaps I'm too impatient
From just trying to get a checklist assessment to the date of appeal took us three years. There were multiple reasons for that and every single one was because of the ICB. At times it felt like we were dealing with the mafia.
