Subject: Care of Mrs Evelyn Lovelock and Holyport Meeting
Many Thanks for your letter of 8th January and plans to host a meeting at Holyport Lodge with Wokingham Unitary (Social Services) staff. I share your concerns on funding of my mother's care - particularly since there seems to be some doubt on whether you have yet received any payments from NHS or Social Services. As you know, we have made payments to you promptly, for November, December and January - the £673.51 cheque.
I look forward to attending the meeting and will, of course, be listening intently. I think the last 3 months have provided ample time for all parties to get the appropriate advice from their senior management, and all have access to both web sites above. I think it might be helpful if you or I tabled copies of this letter at the meeting. My position has not changed since my first letter on this subject to Social Services in November (ANJU4).
I have particular questions which I would like to hear answered at the meeting:
1) names, roles and employer of each person at the meeting ?
2) what payments have Holyport Lodge received so far from NHS and Social Services ?
3) what payments from NHS and Social Services are expected for the Nov to Jan period ?
4) what payments from NHS and Social Services are expected after January ?
5) Have Social Services yet requested 100% NHS funding for my mother's care ?
6) If not, why not ?
7) Will Social Services provide me a copy of the medical consultants report ?
8) Do Social Services understand that their actions to date have been unlawful ?
Nothing in this letter modifies or reduces in any way my claim for 'free continuing care' under the Coughlan Case for my mother.
